In “Signals Crossed” Michael Massaia explores the phenomenon and effect of the proliferation of animated LED billboards currently blanketing New York City. Using moderately long exposures to capture the hidden, chaotic, and at times beautiful patterns that occur in between and during the animated advertisements, Massaia attempts to display these patterns as a true analogue for the sense of overstimulation that the digital age is imposing on the collective thought process. The resulting images show the ads melting away; what remains is a mirror of their effects on the viewer.
