The July 2012 Midnight Moment featured videos by three artists: Vicki DaSilva, Surabhi Saraf, and Elly Cho, presented in partnership with the Times Square Advertising Coalition, Artists Wanted and chashama.

Vicki DaSilva
Jasmine / Never Sorry (for Ai Weiwei), 2011 (excerpt)

Jasmine/Never Sorry (for Ai Weiwei) was a tribute to Chinese activist and artist Ai Weiwei. DaSilva referenced freedom of speech through the jasmine fluorescence of her light graffiti.

Surabhi Saraf
PEEL, 2009  (excerpt)

PEEL presented a visual echo of the instance of an unexamined moment. Simple gestures of a seemingly mundane daily activity morphed into a complex choreography when multiplied. The effect of this process further reverberated through the multiple screens of Times Square.

Elly Cho
Visual Kinematics: a state of mind (No.10), 2011  (excerpt)

This video was part of a project series called “Visual Kinematics” in which Cho heightened the aesthetic contrast of the natural environment through black and white to evoke nostalgia for nature.
