    September 1-30, 2014; every night from 11:57pm-midnight Earlier this summer, thousands of people lined up in Times Square to be filmed crawling on a green screen by Spanish artist Daniel Canogar for the chance to be featured in a film that will be shown on the Square’s spectacular billboards in September. The resulting film, titled Storming Times Square, will premiere on the Times Square billboards on September 1st and will be screened every night in September from 11:57 p.m. to midnight on 15 signs and 45 screens as part of the Midnight Moment, a monthly presentation of The Times Square Advertising Coalition (TSAC) and Times Square Arts. The project is presented in partnership with bitforms gallery and supported by AC/E and Spain Culture New York - Consulate General of Spain: member of the network Spain Arts & Culture. Using methods of public intervention and video installation, Storming Times Square is born from a desire to have viewers project themselves, literally and metaphorically, onto their immediate environments. The visitors to Times Square were filmed crawling horizontally on a green screen, and now, the film will be projected vertically on the buildings of Times Square, giving the illusion that the participants are scaling the buildings. This project is a first in the history of Midnight Moment to use a live action performance to create an artwork for the screens.

      • Street Theater BSC

        from Bade Stageberg Cox Architecture Added 1,527 1 0

        Street Theater is a staging of reclaimed chairs found on the streets of New York City, repaired and given a coat of taxicab yellow paint. Arranged in 7 rows of 7, the chairs mimic theater seating, with Times Square as its stage. As the plaza is occupied throughout the day, the chairs' movement and rearrangement becomes a performance about the ways in which people inhabit the public realm and shape it to suit their needs. This urban ballet in one of the busiest public spaces in the world is documented in this video, illustrating the transition from a static arrangement of chairs to a field of dynamic patterns reflecting the fluid nature of public space. Sponsored by Times Square Arts for NYCxDesign week.

          I installed a 20ft wide by 9ft scoreboard that says "Capitalism Works for Me!" in Times Square and passers by could vote true or false. We are releasing clips from each day the sign is in Times Square. A longer, more polished video will come later, but these are a few snippets collected on October 8th.
