The Love Above All Else video is a projection created from the repeated writing of the word Love (or I love you), drawn both handed for brain balancing. Beneath the images is an under layer of love’s opposite in the form of fourteen photographs combined that symbolize war, racism, poverty, disease, terrorism, global warming, mass shootings, ethnic cleansing, refugees displaced, hurricanes, fires, religious conflicts, family separations, and famine. Together these constitute one disruptive, apocalyptic image that has been lightened to be barely visible, as if the totality of all human suffering is disappearing.
Conceptually, the lightening of the image that is almost invisible underneath represents the power of love to transmute all that negativity. The Love Above All Else projection symbolically represents the vibration of love triumphant over Earth’s current malaise.
The video is based on the “Love’s Letters” Series which are one-of-a-kind photo based images created by the repeated writing of “Love” or “iLoveyou”. Those images were combined and animated by FlickerLab Studios to produce the final video.
It was shown in September, 2019 at the Museo Marino Marini as part of the FirenzeSuonaContemporanea, a music and arts festival in Florence, Italy.

CODA: Collaboration of Design + Art
The global online community that celebrates design projects featuring commissioned artworks.
[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
