NYC Heart

NYC HEART is a playful, fluid light sculpture proposed and shortlisted for New York’s annual Valentine’s Day celebration. The attraction was conceived to respond to the urban landscape and ephemerality of light and love. A blurry light cloud in the shape of a heart is created by various sizes of lightbulbs attached to the tips of 600 flexible poles positioned randomly in Times Square.
