Times Square Arts

BIG♥NYC by BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group) with FLATCUT_ and Local Projects conducts the flow of people, air and touch to bring its heart to life. The ten-foot tall glowing sculpture consists of 400 transparent, LED-lit acrylic tubes that form a cube around a suspended red heart.

The transparent tubes refracted the lights of Times Square, creating a cluster of condensed city lights around the heart. The hovering heart pulsates faster reflecting the chain of human energy in the heart of Times Square.
