All Month Long, This Cat Video Will Play In Times Square

Posted: Updated:

For three minutes every night in February, cat lovers can watch a lone cat sipping milk from a terracotta bowl across 15 billboards in New York City's Times Square. And we think it's simply purr-fection.

The art installment, titled Büsi, was originally created in 1995 by Swiss artists Peter Fischli and David Weiss for a 96-hour video installation. The clip was shortened for use in a 2001 Creative Times project in Times Square and has re-emerged 15 years later.


Artist Fischli said in a statement that the video is not intended to be kitchy or over the top. "To do something that's more spectacular than what's going on in Times Square would be impossible. We wanted to do something very simple and quiet: it was a logical step for us."

The calming and cute video is one of 46 videos to be featured in Times Square's Midnight Moment series. The series, which started back in 2012, begins nightly at 11:57 and ends at midnight.

If you can't make it down to Times Square to see the installation in person, you can watch the extended video above or plan a trip to the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum from February 5 to April 27 to see Fischli and Weiss's How To Work Better retrospective.
