The frenzied pace and conflicting rhythms of Times Square are captured through a dense tapestry of light and space achieved through rigorous optical printing and rich, eye-popping colour overlays.

Playing as part of Wavelengths 3: Farther Than the Eye Can See

Overlapping light and space continue in Tomonari Nishikawa's 45 7 Broadway, which captures the paralyzing pace and conflicting rhythms of Times Square. Shot on black-and-white 16mm through red, green and blue filters, then optically printed onto colour film through these same filters, 45 7 Broadway is less jazzy than Mondrian's Broadway Boogie Woogie but equally eyepopping in its colour and illusionistic effect.
