Valentine’s Day Heart Sculpture Reveals Astrological Matches

Valentine’s Day Heart Sculpture Reveals Astrological Matches

'Match-Maker' is an interactive installation that will be on view in Times Square in celebration of Valentine's Day.

Brooklyn-based design studio Young Projects is this year’s winner of the Times Square Alliance Valentine Heart Design competition for their intricate heart-shaped sculpture. The interactive installation features the twelve zodiac signs surrounding a complex structure that forms a symmetrical heart from some angles while appearing as a tangled mess of intertwining elements from other perspectives, reflecting the true nature of love. When viewers stand on their zodiac sign, their four most ideal astrological mates are revealed through periscopes, creating the opportunity for new encounters.

Titled ‘Match-Maker’, the sculpture was constructed by Young Projects in collaboration with fabricator Kammetal, and was jointly selected and funded by Times Square Arts and Van Alen Institute. ‘Match-Maker’ will make its debut appearance in Father Duffy Square in Times Square on February 6th and remain on view until March 11th.
