Love, Tracey: Emin’s Times Square Valentines Will Make You Want to Kiss—Or Cry
Every night next month, at the stroke of 11:57, Tracey Emin will restore neon and romance to Times Square. On more than 40 screens large and small, for a span of three minutes, her six messages of love will spell themselves out, digitally animated to appear as if being written by a giant unseen hand.
Urgent and plaintive, they’ll inject the Great White Way with the red glow of passion—not necessarily requited. “Love is what you want,” says one. “I can’t believe how much I loved you,” says another.
The display, curated by Times Square Arts, comes just as limited digital editions of the love messages come up for sale at s[edition] starting at $16. How about a screensaver for Valentine’s Day? Read more at ARTnews.com
