Times Square's Midnight Moment is an art initiative by Times Square Arts in which all of the billboards in Times Square synchronize to show an audio/visual art piece at exactly 11:57pm everyday for 3 minutes.
This month, the featured Midnight Moment is Copenhagen Cycles Journey, by visual multimedia artist Eric Dyer. In this video, the artist explains a bit about the project.
Copenhagen Cycles Journey features moving images of Copenhagen that swirl across the screen and establish a dizzying pace as the viewer is led through a tour of the city in what feels like a pop-up book come to life. Dyer began the project during a Fulbright Fellowship, when he spent eight months exploring and videotaping Copenhagen from the seat of his bicycle. The artist selected sequential stills from the footage to construct several zoetrope-like cut-paper sculptures, capturing the rotation of the sculptures on high-definition video to create the final product.
