A romantic installation was recently unveiled in Times Square, New York by Brooklyn-based design firm Situ Studio called Heartwalk, a heart-shaped enclosure built using salvaged wood from the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Collected both from New York and New Jersey, the boards form a slatted construction that lifts from the ground and is illuminated from within. Visitors are encouraged to enter the installation and literally stand in the heart of the city. You can view their online gallery and send in your photos to be included.
