Neon Valentines by Tracey Emin
s[edition], the online platform for the world’s most renowned contemporary artists to sell their digital limited editions, brings celebrated British artist Tracey Emin to Times Square throughout February.
The installation, “I Promise To Love You”
Tracey Emin’s moving series of neon works, I Promise To Love You, was comprised of six written love messages animated especially for Midnight Moment. In this unique moving image, the glowing words—made of neon lights—slowly spelled themselves out, as if being written by a ghost or an invisible presence.
“Every year I send valentines. This year I won’t have to. Times Square will do it for me,” said Tracey Emin. The title is her promise to love NYC, as well as individual promises to love one another.
The artwork, a dazzling visual valentine, will be shared with New Yorkers and visitors as part of a synchronized program on over fifteen of the largest digital displays in Times Square.
February “Midnight Moment” features these neon works by Tracey Emin throughout February 2013, every night from 11.57pm – midnight:
above: I promise to love you, 2007
above: Love is what you want, 2011
above: I listen to the ocean and all I hear is you, 2011
above: When I held you I held your heart, 2012
above: can’t believe how much (how much) I loved you, 2012
above: You touch my soul, 2012
“I Promise to Love You”, premiered on February 1st and plays throughout the month as part of the “Midnight Moment”, a presentation of the Times Square Advertising Coalition (TSAC) and Times Square Arts. s[edition] helped bring these works to Times Square and they will all be available for sale simultaneously and exclusively at [s]edition.
