TIMES SQUARE ARTS, TSAC & AIGA/NY PRESENT OCTOBER’S MIDNIGHT MOMENT
The AIGA/NY invited a select group of New York designers to submit videos for October’s Midnight Moment. Midnight Moment is the largest coordinated effort in history by the sign operators in Times Square to display synchronized, cutting-edge creative content on electronic billboards and newspaper kiosks throughout Times Square every night.
This short was loosely inspired by the book The End of Night and the search for starry skies in an urban, light-polluted, visually cacophonous landscape.
