A post dinner stroll with some friends visiting from Atlanta led us to this LED Heart sculpture in Times Square! Designed by BIG in collaboration with FLATCUT_ and Local Projects, this sculpture supposedly gets brighter as more people touch a nearby heart pad. The instructions were a bit vague, and the results were more subtle than expected. I had my hand on the heart with three strangers and didn’t see much of a change.

Either way, the sculpture was a pleasant surprise in Times Square, which I have avoided like a proper non-tourist. The sculpture is up until February 29th, so stop by if you get a chance.

*And Facebook a photo of the BIG heart to Think Energy, they’re donating $1/photo to Hope and Heroes Children’s Cancer Fund.
