Add to Calendar 01-11-2012 30-11-2012 15 Times Square Moment: A Digital Gallery Featuring TAKESHI MURATA'S PSYCHEDELIC VISUALS Billboards in Times Square will explode with Chicago artist Takeshi Murata's psychedelic colors this November as part of the Times Square Moment: A Digital Gallery, a monthly program that transforms New York City's iconic digital signs into cutting edge works of art. A presentation of the Times Square Advertising Coalition (TSAC) and Times Square Arts, Murata's Melter 2 will be shown every night throughout the month of November from 11:57pm to midnight. The November program is curated by Electronics Arts Intermix (EAI). In Melter 2 (2003), Takeshi Murata'sanimations are like beautiful waves of color washing over the viewer. Melter 2comes from Murata's early body of work consisting of rich, colorful, psychedelic, hand-drawn animation. The crisp colors and elegant morphing shapes are in stark contrast with the artist's later "data mosh" works, which are based heavily upon digital video glitch, and the .avi format. This nightly, free attraction brings creativity, energy, cutting-edge graphics, and digital art to the Crossroads of the World. When "Times Square Moment: A Digital Gallery"premiered in May of 2012, it marked the first time sign operators surrounding Times Square joined together to offer coordinated creative content at a regularly scheduled time each and every day. The piece will run through out seven city blocks of Times Square every night counting down the three minutes to midnight.
