MODU and Eric Forman Studio use the magic of mirrors and light to remix and reflect the urban spectacle of New York City with Heart Squared. As viewers move around the skeletal structure evoking an anatomic heart, the reflections of 125 mirrors coalesce to reveal a kaleidoscopic portrait of city, visitor, and sky.
William Kentridge creates, erases, and revises his images over rapidly turning pages, as lines from poems and proverbs flicker past — potential fortunes for viewers in Times Square.
Ushering in the new year with symbols of birth, renewal and change, MOTH features a hand-painted, fluttering moth that transforms from a common insect into ominous, fantastical creatures.
In Shantell Martin’s improvisational illustrations, faces and figures appear and disappear amongst images of the city and of Times Square itself, mingling with a playful, direct address to the viewer on the age-old question of identity: “who are you?”
