A new COVID-19 Memorial is blooming in NYC now through February 28. After laying 20+ floral hearts around the city, artist Kristina Libby has once again put her Floral Heart Project on display in a new public art window exhibit at SpreadLightNYC.

Heartbleed, a video installation and sculpture piece, reflects the lives lost to COVID-19. Each petal represents a life and is timed to fall corresponding to a day. When you watch the entire video, you will see a petal for every person lost and the timeline over which we have lost them. The floral heart sculpture, created by Kristina, with the video installation, designed by Charlie Whitney (Sharkbox), is a memorial intended to provide and promote healing in our community.

Founded by Kristina in March as a way to help provide healing to those grieving in isolation, the Floral Heart Project, now in collaboration with 1-800-Flowers and MindAlt has created a safe space in Tribeca for the community to mourn together and honor the lives we've lost. Passerbyers are encouraged to leave a candle, a photograph or make a wish.
