Love Letters is an artistic piece that prods the viewer to consider vivid and rich textures of love and how it is understood as a symbol, a thought, a language, and a feeling. Whether for your partner, your grandmother, a tree in a park, or a food stand, we want to know what makes your heart expand!
The resulting design is a visual record of experiences that speaks through pattern, text and audio that will detail how we come to know and understand love in all of its layers of complexity.
Love Letters is looking to collect brief audio and written responses from you!
BSAM Canada, in collaboration with STEPS Public Art, Waterfront BIA and Waterfront Toronto invites you to reminisce on your relationship with love. What was it about love that caught your eye, that caused you to wonder, and left an imprint on you? To participate, submit your love letter below and use the following prompts to leave a few words or brief sentiments as your letter to love.
1. What’s the first thing you would teach your younger self about love?
2. What is an expression of love that has stayed with you for a long time?
3. Do you think the way your family loves has affected the way you love?
Your words may be incorporated into an artistic design that will surround the Love Park construction.
Love Park, reclaimed as public space from its former use as the Gardiner’s York-Bay-Yonge eastbound off-ramp, will be a new 2-acre park at the foot of York Street and Queens Quay West on Toronto’s waterfront, being brought to life by Waterfront Toronto and the City of Toronto.
Deadline to submit your feelings, thoughts, and expressions of love is July 2, 2021. If you have any questions about this project, please reach out to BSAM Canada team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
