ODU ART STUDENT'S CREATION IN TIMES SQUARE

A digital animation created by Old Dominion University senior art major Abbott John "Spiff" Addesso was one of only three selected from more than 600 entries to be displayed on the famous Panasonic Astrovision in Times Square through September.

Addesso submitted "Over-red" for the "Who's Afraid of Blue, Red and Green" series of The 59th Minute: Video Art on the NBC Astrovision by Panasonic in Times Square. Sponsored by Creative Time, an organization that commissions, produces, and presents adventurous, temporary public artworks of all disciplines throughout New York City, the videos air the last minute of every hour of the Astrovision programming from 6 a.m. to 1 a.m. Addesso's piece began airing June 24 and will run through September 30.

In "Who's Afraid of Blue, Red and Green," artists investigated the nuanced relationship between distance, proportion, scale, color and moving imagery. Modern video, computer and television screens are based upon these three colors.

Addesso's "Over-red" and the other top 40 submissions can be viewed online at http://brg.adm.at/top40.php.
