TIMES SQUARE HEART · NYC


NYC Heart is a playful light installation proposed for New York City’s annual Valentine’s Day celebration.

The work invites Times Square visitors to step within a cloud of hovering lights – mounted on 600 thin steel poles –  and experience, for a short moment, a comforting, human-scaled moment of play.

The design gives a nod to the transient nature of Times Square and the blurriness of light and love.
