Times Square Heart

Specially for Valentine's day the Times Square Alliance commissioned this pulsating heart as a public art installation in Times Square. Completely made by New York artists, architects and manufacturers, the heart will be displayed for just two weeks and has been a big hit, to judge from all the people admiring it when I was there. If you'd like to read more about it there's a New York Times article about it here (with a better picture!): http://cityroom.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/02/09/a-ove-themed-spectacle-for-times-sq/

Your striking photo of "The Heart" is the best by far, of any I've seen of it. I might be in the minority here, but do not care for the sculpture, however noble the concept or creative the construction. It seems more like art by committee, than a work springing from a single, organic inspiration.

A pulsating heart.... how real it that....Wonder if it could experience a "heartbreak".

Great piece of artwork!!!!!

Well, it looks like it is staying for a while. It was supposed to be out last w.e. but it is a good commercial hit. There is a platform on both sides so that tourists can pose for photos. Maybe it is staying for the entire month. I think February is "take care of your heart" month, or something.
