Times Square as urban forest

The New York chapter of the American Institute of Graphic Arts has launched an intriguing project in the world famous intersection, Times Square.

Called Urban Forest the project aims to bring graphic art into full view in the city with an intriguing brief:

The Urban Forest Project brings 185 banners created by the world’s most celebrated designers, artists, photographers and illustrators to New York’s Times Square. Each banner uses the form of the tree, or a metaphor for the tree, to make a powerful visual statement. Together they create a forest of thought-provoking images at one of the world’s busiest, most energetic, and emphatically urban intersections.
