Overview

koro loko contains a three-dimensional heart formed hundreds of dichroic plexiglass squares, reflecting the full spectra of light . Daytime gives the impression of a light, ephemeral structure with intricate detailing upon closer inspection. Under the darkness of night, the heart sparkles and reflects light from the spotlights mounted on lightpost surrounding it. Our lightposts are snuggled by comfy benches (containing interactive easter eggs!) for a place to sit, reflect, and connect (or take a nap!).
