#11    Happy Hearts
NYC Times Square Valentine

Location: New York, NY
Status: 2013
Program: Invited competition for the annual Times Square Valentine’s installation
Size: N/A

It’s all about LOVE and the things that make you smile. It is about the moment to see and be seen. It is about sharing a simple, carefree occurrence at the ‘Crossroads of the World.’

As a visitor to Happy Hearts NYC, you can slide together with a friend, a loved one, or a family member and take a short accelerated trip through a heart in Times Square. It’s not just a pretty object, it’s a spatial instance. It’s a heart shaped double slide to happiness because it brings a smile to your face. It’s a box because what’s better than a heart in a box? It’s a reflective surface because it emphasizes that you are moving within the heart of Times Square, a playful play on perspective. And best of all it’s a sliding tunnel of love and happiness.
