At 44 1/2, Creative Time’s presentation of video art on MTV’s screen in Times Square, the classic video work Deadpan (1997) by Turner Prize-winning artist Steve McQueen is being screened.

This installation creates an interior condition that reacts according to an exterior streetscape, and reasserts an active role in shaping that public space. Shape Memory Alloys (SMAs), a category of metals that change shape according to temperature, offer the possibility of efficient, fluid movement without the mechanized motion of earlier technologies.
