“Let LOVE Guide Your Way” is an art project to spread the message of Universal LOVE: to encourage kindness, compassion & tolerance.
“Let LOVE Guide Your Way” is an interactive public art project that allows the community to view, participate and contribute their experience of kindness.
The message of Universal LOVE is conveyed through the art, the exhibits, and the interactive website. The art is represented with kinetic and static sculpture: Heart-shapes turned sideways and weathervanes represent the art for the project. In addition, the project has interactive written and video components that allow for community participation, contribution and interaction.
A weathervane is a device used to measure wind direction. A weathervane is also a metaphoric expression to describe people who change their views frequently. In a chaotic world, when faced with a dilemma, let love guide your way.

E) A section that allows visitors to interact and share their Story of Kindness. Three keyboards would be placed on tables in front of a large monitor. The monitor would be displaying in a scrolling format the Stories of Kindness from the project. The keyboards would allow visitors to type their experience and to contribute their Story of Kindness,
F) a section that allows visitors to view Interviews of Kindness of a large monitor. A large monitor would display the interviews in scrolling format. Visitors would be encouraged to contribute & participate, and to hand-write their answers to the 5 questions that are viewed on the monitor.
