VIDEO: Marsha Gordon, an N.C. State film professor, inspired by Thomas Edison's 1896 film in which he filmed actors John Rice and May Irwin nuzzling and kissing for 19 seconds, decided to update it to the modern day. The result is “Public Displays,” which is billed as an interactive video installation and performance piece at Flanders Gallery in downtown Raleigh. The last filming session will be 5 to 9 p.m. Sunday, Valentine’s Day. Video courtesy of publicdisplays.org Ethan Hyman ehyman@newsobserver.com
