Digital Art: Midnight Moment

times-square-moment-2

If galleries and museums aren’t really your thing, it’s ok. Living the artful life isn’t confined to viewing paint-smeared canvases in museums and galleries. Have you ever considered that technology could be artistic? For 21st century art lovers and artists alike, technology has opened the gateway to viewing art on all our digital devices. Not only are we able to view digital copies of paintings and sculptures, but contemporary artists and programmers have turned our screens into canvases and pixels into paint.

Technology surrounds our everyday lives and so does digital art!

Hidden in Plain Sight:

Midnight Moment in Times Square

If you find yourself in Times Square before midnight strikes, take a moment to pause and look up. For three minutes, beginning promptly at 11:57pm, synchronized electronic billboards display an exhibition of digital art. Midnight Moment “is the world’s largest, longest-running digital art exhibition” and has been curated by ┬áTimes Square Arts for the last 4 years. It is estimated that annual viewership of 2.5 million!!!

Each exhibition shows nightly for a month before a new one takes its place. I won’t tell you what’s on view this month, you’ll have to go and experience it for yourself. But here are a few video selections of some of my favorites over the last year. Enjoy!!
