A heart a part

Installed at 55 Norfolk Gallery, Cambridge, MA

(4.5'X5') Overheard in Amsterdam: In-progress composition of a sketch I drew after overhearing a couple arguing about their past love lives. She said, "You know I know", and he said, "I know you know". There was such a symmetry to the moment and it struck me that a heart shape can be as divergent a form as it is a unifying one. It's better if the couple is looking at you, like they know about you too.

I'm also experimenting with a projector for the first time. Not for tracing - the drawings of the faces (and all the tape drawings to date) are painstakingly done freehand - but because I wanted to try drawing a pattern using a grid that I project over the whole thing at the end. That's what the pink tape is for.

Really cool! Love the way the guys chin pokes out of the heart.
