Alice Dunseath’s You Could Sunbathe in this Storm (Slight Return) is part of Times Square’s Midnight Moment. Each day all month, from 11:57 p.m. to midnight, Dunseath’s display which incorporates video art, animation, and live action, overtakes Times Square.

Times Square Arts states, “The work begins with the dramatic collapse of what could be a child’s architectural construction of three-dimensional plaster objects… [which] become animate, transforming and interacting in playful flirtatious movements… overtaken by intensely chromatic, crystalline formations, evoking vast, otherworldly landscapes.”
