“Ay Corazon” is a self-titled poem-installation. This sculptural piece, constructed with plastic grocery bags and copper wire, will be mounted onto a tarp-covered fence that faces a busy street near the 60 freeway entrance.
This project is influenced by graffiti art and shares graffiti’s affinity for transgressing boundaries and trespassing private property. Also similar to graffiti, the goal is to beautify an otherwise blank or blighted space with my own personal aesthetic vision. However, there are some marked differences. Unlike graffiti, instead of marking one’s own name as a way of claiming or marking territory, I’m interested in marking the name of another, of a loved one as in a public proclamation of affection. However, instead of observing an anonymous moniker, the audience is meant to insert the image of their personal sweetheart.
Location and Time
“Ay Corazon” will go up tonight at 5:30pm (July 13th) on Santa Anita Avenue off the 60 Freeway near the Mobile Gas Station, directly across from the other huge, empty vacant lot. Look for us, we’ll be there 🙂
