Daniel Canogar
Storming Times Square, 2014

Sep 1 – 30, 2014
11:57 pm – 12:00 am, daily

Using methods of public intervention and video installation, Storming Times Square was born from a desire to have viewers project themselves, literally and metaphorically, onto their immediate environments. This public art project is Daniel Canogar’s largest to date in NYC.

From July 24th to the 27th participants were invited to crawl over a green-screen surface while being captured by an over-head video camera in Times Square. The culmination of this video shoot is a multi-channel animation featuring participants climbing up the LED billboards in Times Square, screened nightly in September from 11:57 pm till midnight.

Storming Times Square is part of the “Midnight Moment” program, the largest coordinated effort in Times Square to display synchronized, cutting-edge creative content on electronic billboards throughout Times Square. “Midnight Moment” is organized and supported by the Times Square Advertising Coalition (TSAC) in partnership with Times Square Arts, with additional partners of participating sign holders and artists.
