@SituStudio’s Times Square “Heartwalk”

Dumbo, Brooklyn-based Situ Studio (@situstudio) recently built in Times Square “Heartwalk,” a heart-shaped structure constructed entirely of debris from Hurricane Sandy’s aftermath. The four-person group of designers and builders shared their process of constructing Heartwalk on Instagram along the way.

“The genesis of the Heartwalk project was tied to reusing reclaimed material from Hurricane Sandy. The entire structure is fabricated out of boardwalks salvaged from different communities around the Tri-State Area,” says Situ’s Bradley Samuels. “Approximately 500,000 people pass through Times Square each day, and we decided that Instagram would be the most effective tool to populate a gallery with user-generated content.”

The Heartwalk sculpture, shared on Instagram through the #heartwalktsq hashtag, was the winning submission to the fifth annual Times Square Valentine Heart Design competition and was commissioned by Times Square Alliance (@timessquarenyc) and Design Trust for Public Space (@designtrustnyc). It will be on display in Times Square until Sunday, March 10.

People today think being a hermit is a very unhealthy thing to do. Very antisocial, doesn’t contribute anything to everybody else - because everybody else is busy contributing like blazes, and a few people have to run off and get out of the way. But I’ll tell you what hermits realize. If you go off into a far, far forest and get very quiet, you’ll come to understand that you’re connected with everything. That every little insect that comes buzzing around you is a messenger, and that little insect is connected with human beings everywhere else. You can hear. You become incredibly sensitive in your ears and you hear far-off sounds. And just by the very nature of isolating yourself and becoming quiet, you become intensely aware of your relationship with everything else that’s going on.

In this small studio apartment is quite hard to create a focal point, but this guy managed to create it by using 1-1/2-inch MDF pieces secured to two strips of iron. This way he created a striking headboard that extends all the way to the ceiling to create a visual interest and to redefine the space.
