Every night from 11:57pm until midnight a digital art exhibition takes over the giant electronic billboards in Times Square. Started in 2012, Midnight Moment has become the world’s largest and longest-running digital art exhibition with an estimated annual viewership of 2.5 million people. Every night this month Dizzillusions by multimedia artist RaFia Santana will present in Times Square at midnight.

Dizzillusions is a self-portrait, digitally painted and animated in a looping video. The artist’s head floats against a background of psychedelic waves and vibrating, color-shifting shapes. RaFia attempts to capture the overwhelming nature of Times Square in their work, “With my work, I provide a stimulating respite for those struggling with the normalization of hyper-productivity and the exhausting capitalization of distraction.”

Dizzillusions will be on display the entire month of April.
