Midnight Moment: Sebastian Errazuriz



Clocktower Radio's Jeannie Hopper and Sherry Dobbin of Times Square Arts talk with artist Sebastian Errazuriz about A Pause in the City That Never Sleeps, his January 2015 Midnight Moment project in Times Square.

Midnight Moment is the largest coordinated effort in history by the sign operators in Times Square to display synchronized, cutting-edge creative content on electronic billboards and newspaper kiosks throughout Times Square every night. The program premiered in May 2012 and is organized and supported by the Times Square Advertising Coalition in partnership with Times Square Arts, the public art program for the Times Square Alliance, with additional partners of participating sign holders and artists. Midnight Moment is a nightly event at 11:57pm, which transforms the billboards of Times Square into the world’s largest digital gallery.

Chilean born, New York based artist and designer Sebastian Errazuriz was raised in London and obtained a design degree in Santiago. He later received his Master’s in Fine Arts from New York University. Errazuriz has received international acclaim for his singular and provocative works on a variety of areas and disciplines, tackling everything from political artworks to giant public art projects, experimental furniture to product design and women’s shoes to motorcycles.

Clocktower Radio wishes to thank Red Bull Studios New York for providing their studio facilities for this session.
