During Glasgow City Council’s ‘City of Love’ event, I created site-specific gum hearts throughout the city. Used gum was scraped off the sidewalks and re-applied in the shape of hearts. This anonymous intervention was encountered by passers-by and subsequent response found in on-line blogs was produced as a booklet.
