Typographic Installation

2200 brass thumbtacks and red modeling clay 

30 X 40 in canvas


愛 (ai) means love in Chinese. In 愛 there is always chance you might get hurt when you open your heart to someone. When someone is hurt from love, they get many negative feelings towards love.


However, love goes both ways and I believe many of us have experienced love in a positive way. It is really simple to help someone in need of love and to show them that we are here for them. This raises the question if you would help someone you do not know; where you might not get anything back; that you might even get hurt from?

Dare To Love challenges you to step up and show that you care by placing red clay over the installation.
