Public installation artist Candy Chang is back with another wonderful project! Similar in vein to her New Orleans installation, Chang has created something amazing out of something old and often overlooked.
“Looking for Love Again is an interactive public art project that collects everyone's stories and ideas about the Polaris Building to help us better understand the history and forces that have shaped Fairbanks, while tugging at the heart strings of those who might be able to make our dreams come true,” Chang shares. “With the help of many new friends, I covered the building with a giant sign that says ‘Looking for Love Again' to turn this vacant high-rise into an emotional beacon pleading for love and inviting people to do a double-take and come in for a closer look. Two chalkboards at the street level invite people to share their memories of the building and hopes for its future. These responses will be documented and entered on the project site lookingforloveagain.org, where you can also contribute directly online.”
Once again, Chang offers hope to the world with her one-of-a-kind creations. By asking the public to document its past and its future, she's made, yet another, inspiring project.
