Send Me Love by Shirley Wu
In 2017, SFMOMA launched Send Me SFMOMA, a service where individuals could text a variety of requests - “send me love”, “send me hope”, “send me smiles” - and SFMOMA would respond with an artwork that best matched the request. They received over 5 million texts from hundreds of thousands of individuals over the course of a year.
I’ve chosen five individuals and a week of their interactions to focus my visualization around. Each tree represents a day in that individual’s life, and flowers and leaves grow as they interact with Send Me SFMOMA.
