Equinox at Union Cemetery
I was invited to create a shrine for Sharon Stevens’ Event Equinox at Union Cemetary in September of 2012. Originally, she asked me to create a heart for the event but I refused. I did not want this solemn event to be a part of the guerrilla heart project. I chose to build a shrine dedicated to my Auntie Marion who was an important figure in my life and whom I lost around the age of 19. As I worked on building the idea for the shrine, I realized it would not be complete without the heart symbol, so I surprised Sharon at installation by fulfilling her wish with a full on Heart Shrine.
Big thanks to Aran Wilkinson-Blanc and Patti Dawkins for the gorgeous shots of this installation!
