Projection Napping

Times Square, NYC | 2020

Optical Animal brings their ongoing series, Projection Napping to Times Square in NYC, as part of the Times Square Arts showcase Midnight Moment, the world’s largest and longest-running digital public art program.

The sprawling, site-specific iteration of the piece was created exclusively for the showcase, featuring a staggering 55 unique channels of video, with each napper nestled cozily into the contours of the screen that they inhabit. The piece takes over the intersection nightly, transforming the iconic location and providing a moment of respite in the heart of the city that never sleeps.
