When asked to create a custom commission for Google on a moving-image-themed floor in Kendall Square, Good Will Hunting immediately came to mind. One of my favorite scenes from the movie, the conversation in the Boston Common between Matt Damon and Robin Wiliams’ characters on the truly important things in life, became the inspiration. The simple bench they sat on during a gorgeous autumn day was my subject matter.

Integrating commissioned artwork into this project aimed to celebrate the cultural significance and cinematic heritage of the iconic bench scene from Good Will Hunting. The primary goal was to create a visual narrative that pays homage to the film and its lasting impact on audiences worldwide. By photographing this renowned location, we sought to blend the historical and emotional essence of the film with the contemporary digital landscape, enriching the project's narrative depth and visual appeal.
