Art film featuring colorful cats on the big screens of Times Square at midnight

 Every midnight in August, a clowder of glowing felines takes over Times Square. Artist Jennifer West’s Painted Cat Hacker Film transforms the “low art” of cat videos into a mesmerizing and monumental public artwork for the big screens with a multi-channel work of handmade digitized GIFs that pay homage to the feline’s role across many moving image genres — from the viral video, to experimental film, and the screens of Times Square themselves.

In conjunction with her Midnight Moment exhibition, West will present a curated selection of artists’ videos and experimental films featuring cats on the Times Square Arts website.

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.
