This project utilized public space to provoke a reexamination of assumptions held by the viewer. My group chose a message of positivity, adding a "trumps hate" sign to the Love Statue on Penn campus, an iconic piece by Robert Indiana.
We brought a speaker to play music and a white board as part of a larger interactive experience. We asked passerby to tell us what love meant to them and documented their responses. The exhibition took place during exams where stresses were mounting to a high and during a time of general tragedy in the world, inserting a reminder of the power of hope, positivity and, of course, love.
