Looking for a novel way to share your love this Black Monday?
The heart is a ten-foot diameter lightweight construction with an open weave fabric that allows wind to pass through, but still captures and reflects light. The main structure is constructed of aluminum elliptical loops radially arranged with rotating connections. The fabric skin integrates the cross-grain substructure of flexible ribs with the main loops.
Without volunteers, the heart lies flat on the ground. Only when the group lifts up the structure does it become a heart!
Basically, it’s an art installation comprised of red fabric stretched over elliptical steel loops that, when held up, looks like a heart. Happy Valentine’s Day indeed.
