Artist Tracey Emin to Share Neon Love Messages in Times Square in February

Artist Tracey Emin has a special project for all the lovers in NYC during February 2013. Three minutes before midnight every night, 40 screens will display romantic neon messages such as "I promise to love you" and "I can't believe how much I love you." They will appear in motion as if they are being written by hand.

The project is thanks to the Times Square Advertising Coalition, who are in support of organizing public art projects. Emin told ARTNews,

“I’m really brilliant at unrequited love. I haven’t had a relationship for years. It’s totally inspired my work...I wonder if people will stand underneath them and kiss and have their photos taken."
