Stereotank’s HeartBeat Transformed into Times Square HeartSeat

Stereotank’s HeartBeat filled the air in Times Square this past Valentine’s Day. Now that the love season is over, the Brooklyn-based practice has turned their clever installation into a welcoming “HeartSeat” by simply opening up their heart-shaped sculpture to the public and transforming it into a bench. The installation will remain on view through Sunday, March 8th. See a video of HeartSeat, after the break.

“We are very excited to extend the life of HeartBeat by transforming it into HeartSeat, a public seating sculpture that, after its time in Times Square, will become part of a public space in New York,” said Stereotank architects Sara Valente and Marcelo Ertorteguy.
