Some works seem very similar! The shades of the artwork by Max Neuhaus are rich and subtle. The grid has a simple and functional character. I would like it when a finer material was chosen.

In the essay by ArtAtSite this artwork is compared with the following artworks. Check this link for the essay.

Molly Dilwort gives her Cool Water Hot Island (New York, picture 1, more information) refreshment and atmosphere in the city and invites you to move on the waves arranged on Time Square.

Do you recognize this: walking endlessly in the evening in a sad city without much to see, especially when you cross a square? Som has created with Avenue Lit Floor (London, picture 2, more information) a playful art made of illuminated lines that cater on a sophisticated way to the people crossing the square. The artwork uses technology to control lights. This is modern, interesting. The colors are playful and make merry. The artwork is physical: I feel like Michael Jackson and have a tendency to dance, to be the center, to carry out a perfect act. This is a good work of art that invites you to move, make fun together and seduce.

Untitled by Diana Thater (Los Angeles, picture 3, more information) uses warm fresh materials so that the atmosphere is improved in the city's night.

How wonderful it must be for you to get a star in Hollywood? Christain Moeller gives with Mojo (Los Angeles, Hollywood, picture 4, more information) you fame for one second at an unexpected moment.

Time Square by Max Neuhaus is a piece of sound art. Installed in 1977, it was created by artist Max Neuhaus, who aptly titled it “Times Square.” Neuhaus made a machine that amplifies the resonance of the Square’s tunnel junction, exposing an uncanny hum that would otherwise remain muffled underground. Amazingly, he created the cloud of noise without the help of a computer or electronic music.
What’s more amazing, though, is that no one ever notices it’s there. Which is kind of the point. There’s no sign pointing out the work. You can’t find Neuhaus’ name anywhere around. The machine is hidden in the bowels of the tunnels below, and all you can see is a sea of cigarette butts, a metal grate, and upturned noses as people catch a whiff of the New York subway’s aroma du jour.
Neuhaus kept it secret because he wanted people to discover it on their own, to experience that “Hey! Guess what I found!” moment. But it also prompts something worth mulling over: Is it possible to distract someone—even for a moment—from the brightest lights in the biggest city?
Well, try for yourself. You can find the buzz on a concrete island between 45th and 46th Streets, pinched between Broadway and 7th Avenue. There’s a good chance that a creepy costumed Elmo or Mario will mark the spot.
