In one of the world’s most Instagrammed places, filled with cameras of all shapes and sizes, Window to the Heart places the world’s largest lens in the center of Times Square. The 12 foot in diameter Fresnel lens was designed with 3D-printing manufacturer Formlabs to distort and capture the image of Times Square, optically bending light – and attention – to the heart-shaped window at its center. Visitors can look through the window or photograph themselves within it, completing the loop between the lens of the eye and the lens of the camera.

Window to the Heart, by Aranda\Lasch + Marcelo Coelho, was the winner of the 10th Annual Times Square Valentine Heart Design Competition, curated this year by the Design Trust for Public Space.The installation will remain on view in Duffy Square, just a short distance away from the Red Steps, all throughout February as a celebration of love in the heart of the city.
