Throughout the month of August Brasilian street art heroes Os Gemeos (aka: Gustavo & Otávio Pandolfo) will be lighting up the night in Times Square with their artwork via a massive digital billboard takeover called the Midnight Moment project. Their new body of animated work, titled Parallel Connection and presented in conjunction with the Times Square Advertising Coalition & Lehmann Maupin Gallery appears from 11:57 pm to midnight each night in August entertaining the unsuspecting masses with an immersive display of their inimitable artwork. Said the duo of their enthusiasm for the opportunity: “We are very happy to try new media, because it was always exciting. This is the first time that we created something of this scale, using screens and a longer animation. It is a dialogue between two worlds, where the viewer is in the middle of the stage, and establishes a conversation between the imaginary and the real world, a break in time to reflect and daydream.”
