A contemporary art cat video will take over Times Square every midnight this February. Büsi, a short film by legendary Swiss contemporary art duo Peter Fischli and David Weiss that finds an adorable kittycat lapping at a platter of milk, is next month's Midnight Moment by Times Square Arts. "Büsi sits amongst Fischli & Weiss' explorations of the ordinary as extraordinary and the extraordinary as ordinary. This cat can easily represent the everyday triumph that any of us feel living in the density of this metropolis, taking one's time amongst the frenzy of media messaging," Times Square Arts Director Sherry Dobbin tells the Creators Project.
