Where is Your Heart?
Project: Where is Your Heart?
Role: Creator and facilitator.
Partners: Neighbors, Friends, Residents.(Self-Generated/Self-Funded Project)
Approach: Creating public space for our collective expression of love/affection/loss.
*Most projects in the interpretation/engagement section are rooted in physical places, but this project explores emotional landscapes*
Using plywood and an existing rear yard fence that abutted a public alley Ann, with the help of friends, facilitated a love themed permission wall in East Austin. Participants were prompted with the question, "Where is your heart?" It was gradually populated by public participation through a series of events during the East Austin Studio Tour (as a Happening) and Valentines Day (Street Art Valentines). Love themed sentiments ranged across romantic/familial/friendly/grief. *This project was inspired by Candy Chang's "Before I die...." wall concept.
