Installing ‘Heart Beacon’ & ‘Heroic City’

We recently installed Heart Beacon and Heroic City by artists Joe O’Connell and Blessing Hancock. Both pieces are located at the Emergency Coordination Center in Portland, Oregon. Heart Beacon is an interactive enclosure of light, color and sound that senses and artistically displays the heartbeats of visitors who lay their hands on the piece. This highly interactive sculpture takes the literal and metaphoric pulse of the Portland community. Heroic City is an interior wall piece for the building’s lobby. Conceptually, the form is an abstracted map, and it displays a variety of color patterns reflecting different levels of activity. #gallery-1 { margin: auto; } #gallery-1 .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align: center; width: 33%; } #gallery-1 img { border: 2px solid #cfcfcf; } #gallery-1 .gallery-caption { margin-left: 0; } /* see gallery_shortcode() in wp-includes/media.php */
