Times Square Midnight Moment: Kambui Olujimi
Time Out says
Times Square Arts is back with its Midnight Moment art series with "In Your Absence the Skies Are All the Same" by interdisciplinary artist Kambui Olujimi, on view for the month of September. 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.
"In Your Absence the Skies Are All the Same" combines footage of skies from around the world, morphed into a central, slow moving, kaleidoscopic image. To create the work, artist Kambui Olujimi collected over 40 views of the sky, shot at different times of day under a variety of weather conditions in various locations, including New York, Cuba, California, and Detroit. Referencing a universal longing for human connection amidst distance and infinitely shifting possibilities, quadrisected skies slowly fold into one another to create an other-worldly dusk.
