    Times Square Arts, the Public Art Program of the Times Square Alliance in partnership with UrbanRemix: During April and May of 2011, we invited the public to explore, share, and remix the sounds of Times Square. UrbanRemix combines location-based cellphone technology, a database, and a web application to allow citizens to record and store media such as sound, images, and ultimately videos in their city and position them in a digital map. On May 12, 2011 Electronic musicians Travis Thatcher and Damon Holzborn performed their digital remixes of sounds from Times Square and the UrbanRemix competition finalist, live in Times Square on Broadway Plaza between 46-47th Street.

The Partner Project/Scene in Public investigates the nature of intimate relationships and how we are changed by witnessing moments of intimacy in public places. These might be expressions of affection, anger, frustration, fear or the many other emotional states that shape relationships. In a public setting these moments become performances – the intimate exchange is a duet and the inadvertent observers become the audience.

        The art project, Blender, by Hidemi Tagaki comes to the plazas and visitor center of Times Square for the month of August. Her bright and saturated images of immigrant food products collected from different boroughs in New York City will be the first public art project on the sides of trash receptacles stationed from 42nd to 47th Streets in the Broadway Plazas. All 95 photographs will also run as a video installation on 7 screens in the entrance to the Times Square Visitor Center. In front of millions of tourists who may never venture outside central Manhattan, Tagaki's project celebrates the diversity of New York's immigrant cultures through the simple designs and languages of packaged foods gathered through her many visits to small neighborhood groceries in every borough. Follow Hidemi Takagi’s extraordinary project, through which her photography beautifully chronicles packaged foods from 47 countries that she found in shops catering to immigrants in 35 neighborhoods throughout New York City. “The look of these food packages often has an old-fashioned feel: bright, saturated colors and outmoded designs that are rare both in Japan, where I’m from, and America, where I now live. Through this project I hope to show that art can transcend time and language even through the simplest imagery found on a candy wrapper. Blender is a lens into New York’s immigrant communities and cultures” -- Hidemi Takagi
