Description: This January, supernovas, cosmic collisions and stellar patterns will collide on the billboards in Times Square, turning the “Crossroads of the World” into the “Crossroads of the Universe.” The “Midnight Moment,” presented by the Times Square Advertising Coalition (TSAC) and Times Square Arts, launches its 2013 season with Stasis, a celestial inspired piece by artists Taxiplasm & Jonathan Henry. The synchronized art program will be shown on over fifteen of the largest digital screens in Times Square every night at 11:57 pm – midnight, as part of the largest coordinated effort in history by sign operators in Times Square to display daily, synchronized creative content.
Tourists and metro area residents have been raving about the late night free attraction and digital gallery that is bringing creativity, energy and cutting-edge graphics, and digital art to the Crossroads of the World. The “Midnight Moment” is the largest coordinated effort in history by the sign operators in Times Square to display synchronized, cutting-edge creative content on billboards throughout Times Square every night. The program, formerly known as Times Square Moment: A Digital Gallery, premiered in May 2012 and is organized and supported by the Times Square Advertising Coalition in partnership with Times Square Arts, the public art program for the Times Square Alliance, with additional partners of participating sign holders and artists.
Each night, Times Square becomes a digital art gallery through dazzling visuals on select billboards. Every show begins at 11:57pm with a "countdown" that signals the start of the 3 minute nightly presentation. Content changes monthly; selected works are announced in the weeks preceding the start of a new show as are the exact signs participating in that month's selection.
