About the Project
From 2000 to 2006, Creative Time and Panasonic provided artists the opportunity to showcase their video art in the media mecca of the world–Times Square. Airing on the last minute of virtually every hour on the Astrovision screen at 1 Times Square, artworks by established and emerging artists offered a minute of escape, intellectual reflection, humor, poetry, beauty, and zen-like contemplation.
In 2006, The 59th Minute presented Euan MacDonald’s meditative video Healer, as well as a showcase of work by emerging artists Brian Alfred, Ara Peterson, and Mark Titchner, which grappled with the fraught history of images and advertising.
