This heart sculpture brings me good memories;
Before I had any sort of money, recognition or big projects, I turned into the arts to create a future for myself. After having co-founded my first project in Belize, I had to return back home to cut my costs, and to dedicate some time to my most ambitious dream – studying art in Europe.
I was asked to present a portfolio of my art, so I combined sculpture and photography for my earlier projects, like this sculpture. This heart is built out of papier mache, stained glass and a LED circuit set to pulse at 120 Beats per minute.
With all my sculptures created, I asked to use my old university‘s photo studio. A friend who shall remain anonymous agreed to pose nude for this picture, and a couple of long exposure shots.
