'Apple Heart'

Turku, Finland, 2008.

'Apple Heart' is located in the grounds of 'Life on a Leaf', a fabulous house project by artist Jan-Erik Andersson. Constructed in wood, two gently curved red rings lean against each other to form a heart shape. My installation was inspired by the apple trees in the old orchard and also by a Finnish love story, the 'King and the Castle', which also inspired the leaf house.
