Inspired by Metaphysics and Buddhism, this heart by Monika Steiner explored the subtle relationship between human perception and objective material reality. Her art has been inspired by the continually changing nature of life, here (seen from the back) represented by dissolving spheres floating in space.

The same theme carried around to the sculpture's back. But when viewed from the back it blended almost perfectly with the concrete and asphalt of the downtown streets.

This work by Hilary Pecis has the theme of landscapes influenced by Internet, television and other media sources. Like most of her work this heart represents the overwhelming supply of raw unfiltered information.
