The Avidors on Minneapolis Saint Paul

A couple of Saturdays ago, I joined many others in filming (digitally) for the One Day On Earth project. I talked with Ken and Roberta Avidor about living a car-free lifestyle at the Union Depot in Lowertown Saint Paul, their work as commercial artists, and about some of the differences between Saint Paul and Minneapolis. I also shot a really fun bicycle hyperlapse from the Union Depot, through downtown Saint Paul, along University Avenue to the Minneapolis border, and back to the Midway. It was as if my camera refused to cross more than a few feet past the point where the manhole covers changed over at the city/county line.

This video is a rough cut of parts of my filming for the day. I hope people enjoy it and find it interesting.
