Artist Statement:


This Web work utilizes text, animated gifs, and MIDI tracks to explore the stereotypes and cliches associated with the word and symbol “heart.” A lounge-lizard MIDI snare track and pumping, animated hearts introduce each text section, where a play on what a reader might expect to see when told to “Take Heart” or following statements such as “Heart Felt” and “Heart Ache” introduces wording quite other than “Hallmark.”

This piece first appeared online at the Web journal frAme4, hosted by the trAce online writing community.
