00:04 NINA: My name is Nina Boesch and I've been
creating MetroCard collages for about ten years now. All my collages are somehow New
York based, I'm trying to pick motifs, you get inspired where ever you go in the city.
00:22 NINA: I've done a lot of portraits of classic
New Yorkers going from Audrey Hepburn to *** Allen, but I also like to do just landmarks.
00:32 NINA: Over the last I've probably cut up about
30,000 MetroCards and uh, I think the largest one I created used probably around 500 cards,
just for that one piece.
00:45 NINA: For this piece I'm working on right
now I'm using probably about 30 to 40 MetroCards all in all and I'm cutting them up in small
pieces so it's a little bit hard to tell how many cards I really use.
01:00 NINA: The public can see my work at House
of Art Gallery in Brooklyn and um the prices range from about eight hundred dollars to
thirty five hundred dollars.
