New digital art at the Barclays Center oculus: "Commercial Break"

On view since Monday, and through March 5, the Public Art Fund is offering "Commercial Break," a citywide exhibition, presents 23 artists who have created platform-specific interruptions within the advertising cycles of some of New York City’s most highly visible and technically advanced digital screens."

So the Barclay Center's oculus is included, along with a Times Square billboard and 19 digital screens at Westfield World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan. It's Curated by Public Art Fund Associate Curators Emma Enderby and Daniel S. Palmer

The 30-second videos are being presented the last 30 seconds of each hour from 6 am to midnight daily, and a different artist is shown each day of the week. Here's the lineup.

The videos are viewable here.  None are going to, say, challenge the commercialism of the Barclays Center, but some are pretty creative.
