Times Square Electronic Billboards | July 1, 2014 - July 31, 2014 Chris Doyle transformed the concrete jungle of New York City's Times Square into a flourishing canyon landscape as part of July's Midnight Moment.
Bright Canyon aims to reconnect Times Square to the natural world by conceiving the space as a gorge. Referencing the history of Times Square as the confluence of streams, the district's walls and screens were transformed into a canyon landscape, populated by a series of exuberant local animals. The cliffs in the work are based on photos, drawings, and videos taken in the Palisades along the Hudson River. Most of the animated animals are based on video of animals observed in Central Park. By starting in the sky, descending the cliff, and finally plunging into the river, the motion of the animation unifies the variety of screens into a single, immersive environment.
Midnight Moment is a monthly presentation of The Times Square Advertising Coalition (TSAC) and Times Square Arts. The July Midnight Moment was presented in partnership with Andrew Edlin Gallery.
