Big Screen Project – New York

The recently launched Big Screen Project’s screen is arguably the first of it’s kind in the US. This vast untapped market till now has been totally dominated by commercial screens like those we recognise so readily from the likes of the iconic and chaotic Times Square, only a dozen or so blocks from this exciting new project. The screen is located at the 10,000 sq. ft. public plaza behind a new 54-story multi-use building on Sixth Avenue between 29th and 30th Street in New York City and has already achieved a dedicated local following.
 

It is refreshing to finally see a creative initiative aimed solely at the promotion of art, culture and entertainment in a public outdoor venue. BSP seek out their creative content from non-web based sources in order to bring fresh thoughts and visuals to their audience. They have already apparently developed a vast library of creative content. Through their work with schools and film festivals they have been able to create a collection of work and a storehouse of over 1000 hours of unique content to date.

BSP is more than a venue for experiencing art in the public – it is potentially a connection to many creative outlets. The goal of BSP is to continuously aggregate content to their outdoor LED screen while also establishing a network of portals where content may be viewed. BSP is built upon shared experiences. The plaza’s HD format screen is their primary channel while they aim to reach out to other conduits for broadcast.
