Happy Valentine’s Day FernCare Visual Art Installation is a 3D Pop-Up Window Display Fundraiser. A spin off from the original Fall In Love With Fashion Valentine’s Day Art Exhibit premier 2012.
About the Installation: Red balloons are a symbol of hope and creative ideas in my work. I wanted to keep the theme from FILWF but also include a Helium news story element. Helium commonly used in the balloon industry (and other emerging technology applications) is an important commodity and big business in our country. Check out this national story via CBS this morning.
I created a simple heart shaped outline made of red balloons with their individual strings tethered to a single red balloon pulling them up and away. Each of the balloons on the floor represents an important resource (people, time, money, creativity, or material). The single floating red balloon is a cause, a creative movement, or a business opportunity that illustrates how they might get pulled together to make something amazing happen. Our needs often have the potential to transform us individually and collectively. That is at the heart of what I call social philanthropy.
