I have always been passionate about finding, creating and building things. To me the Embrace project was a labour of love. It was an amazing way to deepen some connections in my life and forge new strong ties. The challenge of constructing the heart in Vancouver, bringing it down to the playa and then building a giant wooden, human shaped cathedral to hang it in was indescribable. The mechanical heart represents what our city has to offer: connections and togetherness through hard work and ingenuity. I look forward to sharing our work with our community here in Vancouver.
