"Space Times Square" is a meditative journey through the mediated cosmos of Times Square. Drawing from Jean-Paul Sartre and Marshall McLuhan, the film theorizes Times Square as a microcosm of the electronic big bang -- an expanding media cosmos of voids and nothingnesses, image and information, entertainment and inquisition, iPod people and hive-minds, flash mobs and flat-screens, black holes and vanishing points. Times Square is a galaxy in the global media cosmos, where the circuits of cyberspace converge with the constellations of outer space. Filmed entirely from the streets of Times Square and accompanied by poetic narration and an original musical score. 24 minutes.

"Space Times Square" debuted with a juried screening at the 2007 International Digital Media and Arts Conference. The film is also available for viewing on DVD in the Videotheque of the 2008 Cinema du Reel Festival in Paris, at the Centre Pompidou. The film is now freely circulating on the internet, where it belongs, for Times Square is where outer space meets cyberspace. The transfer to Youtube degraded the high-quality images in the original film.
