Bright message for a kinder society
According to R&R Studio (see more here), I love you installations inspire positive action and a great deal of personal memory and desire. It confronts the overwhelming demands that abound in today’s metropolitan environment with an unexpected and unprecedentedly brilliant concept, delivering the message that a better society can be imagined. The sign and the rug together form the outline of a room open to anyone.
I Love You is a poetic work that traverses back and forth between public and private, intimacy and remembrance, social places and landmarks, fiction and fact. The Miami-based company explained, “Like Alice in Wonderland, who transformed her sense of reality by changing scales through dreams, I LOVE YOU provides stunning physical evidence of everyday life.”
This artwork is the latest public art project in the Old Town New Landscape series organized by the City of Alexandria Art Office on the waterfront in Alexandria, Virginia, and will be on view from March to November 2022.
