Video artist Marco Brambilla has been pushing the limits of the form for years with his collaged and effects-laden extravaganzas like Creation, Evolution, and Civilization. Now Hugo Boss with Art Production Fund present his latest, Anthropocene, a seven-minute journey in and around a Central Park that no one has ever seen, where the whole landscape pulses with what? – the rainbow, gay heartbeat of the city? You decide. It’s on the big screen now at Time Warner Center until the 30th. But you can see it here. I suggest you watch it full-screen with a good center-channel speaker for good audio clarity. The soundtrack is Christopher Cerrone’s adaptation of Camille Saint-Saëns’s haunting Carnival of the Animals.
