Compass Song is an app-based public sound artwork inspired by Times Square’s rich history as the Crossroads of the World. Artists Mendi + Keith Obadike have stretched fragments of music, poetry, stories, and myths across the pedestrian plazas and surrounding blocks in all four cardinal directions, for visitors to discover whether they’re exploring the neighborhood or simply on their way to work. Compass Song was commissioned by and created in residence with Times Square Arts. Photo courtesy of Ian Douglas for Times Square Arts.
