"Mountain Time/Light" is This Month's Midnight Moment in Times Square

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's Midnight Moment is digital media artist Lorna Mills' short GIF Mountain Time/Light, which features a sunrise over a mountaintop, sped up to be timed with a human breath.

Mountain Light/Time is an animated GIF collage of a speedy sunrise over mountaintops, with each loop timed to match the duration of a deep breath. The collage creates a virtual inhalation and exhalation of mountain air and light in the middle of Times Square.

Check out the announcement page for more on Mountain Time/Light.
