14. Times Square Midnight Moment

Ka-Man Tse for Times Square Alliance

Every month a new video installation takes over the screens of Times Square at midnight for Midnight Moment, the world’s longest running digital art exhibition. This month from 11:57 PM to midnight, the screens will be taken over by Maria Constanza Ferreira’s film Via. In the film, Ferreira knits together vivid and colorful satellite images to create  abstract views of seemingly endless roads from around the world to abstracted and aerial perspectives of Earth. The patterns take on a frenzied pace and movements reminiscent of natural systems such as blood flow, flight patterns, and atom vibrations.

Midnight Moment is the world’s largest, longest-running digital art exhibition, synchronized on electronic billboards throughout Times Square nightly from 11:57pm to midnight. Presented by the Times Square Advertising Coalition and curated by Times Square Arts since 2012, it has an estimated annual viewership of 2.5 million.
