"California Love Locks" speaks to the European tradition of immortalizing love by adding personal locks to a community space. The sculpture is an eight-foot-tall chain-link fence segment in the shape of California. The community is asked to add their love locks to the surface, creating a unique topography of stories, brass and nickel. Locating locks in locations on the fence segment that would be points of interest in the map of the state of California.
