Pioneering artist Charles Atlas and artist/musician Antony have joined forces to create You Are My Sister (TURNING), which will be shown on Times Square’s billboards from 11:57 pm to midnight each night in December leading up to New Year’s Eve (December 1 – 30).
This project is a part of Midnight Moment, a monthly presentation by The Times Square Advertising Coalition (TSAC) and Times Square Arts. This month’s presentation is in partnership with Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI). For the first time in Midnight Moment history viewers in Times Square will have the unique chance to stream the music while viewing the video through this link: Turning.FORA.tv.
It will also be available to the public online complete with audio on the Times Square Alliance YouTube channel starting on December 1.
For Times Square, Charles Atlas has created a special remix of his vivid, multi-dimensional video portraits of women, which were originally processed and projected live as part of TURNING, a performance collaboration with Antony (of Antony and The Johnsons). The layered images revolve and float in hypnotic motion, forming lush tableaux.
In the live performances, Atlas’ video visualization was paired with Antony’s song You Are My Sister, and his images mirror the lyrics’ powerful message of strength, sisterhood, and transcendence. Atlas’ special remix for Times Square brings together footage drawn from the New York and European performances of TURNING.
