Jason Somma created Times_Square_Analog_Portrait from footage of the electronic billboards, video feedback enlivened with hand-operated camera movements, and signal manipulation using electromagnetic and light frequency information he recorded in Times Square on custom analog devices. Exhibited as a part of the Midnight Moment program, the outcome is a mesmerizing abstraction that loops back onto the digital displays from which it was generated.

For the month of June, Times_Square_Analog_Portrait will play on Times Square's electronic billboards each night from 11:57pm to midnight.

Midnight Moment is the world’s largest, longest-running digital art exhibition, synchronized on electronic billboards throughout Times Square nightly from 11:57pm to midnight. Presented by the Times Square Advertising Coalition and curated by Times Square Arts since 2012, it has an estimated annual viewership of 2.5 million.
