Back when building public art was just an intangible dream, seeing theses fun and quirky hearts popping up around my city filled me with joy. They were just so approachable. Although the fiberglass heart provides artists with a fairly rigid form factor to work with, some of the hearts I have seen through the years were incredibly clever and whimsically perfectly site specific.
A collaboration with Dede Lucia, Srikanth Guttikonda, Kyle Matlock, and Looking Up Arts. Making one of these hearts has been a decade-long dream. The design is a fictional landscape of some of my favorite Victorian homes, with some of the windows replaced with diffused addressable lighting.
