XOX! Share the Love is a thoughtfully designed and skillfully crafted work of art that utilizes ubiquitous iconic symbols, playful shapes and forms, and vibrant colors to attract and to stimulate viewer interaction. With familiar elements of the universally recognized TIC TAC TOE game, XOX! Share the Love is a reimagined strategic game that reminds adults of the pleasures of their childhood. By design, it encourages engagement and connection over division, joy and resilience over aggression and defensiveness. It is a project that transcends the boundaries of any one discipline with research rooted in social psychology related to play, visual communications including principles of advertising and graphic design, game development, digital fabrication, sculptural skills and hand finishing, public art, social practice art and community engagement. This work originated from my interest in the question: How can an artwork bring people together?
