“Times Square is a felt experience, an area of New York that overloads the senses with buildings, billboards, and lights, leaving travelers to make sense of differing signals. Interference AV brings these facets to a three-day spectacle, with leading forces in fringe art, music, and video collaborating at a historic movie theater right in the middle of “the crossroads of the world.” Believing this crossroads to be the impetus of art, we have devised a place where people will want to stay: an experimental coven and artistic sanctuary. Be prepared to take it all in, popcorn and earplugs in hand.”
– Lani Combier-Kapel, Curator & Event Manager for Clocktower
