Carnival Love Wall is a fond celebration of mid-century modern advertising signage and carnival attractions, drawing on the simple yet joyful geometry of flashing, whirling and galloping shapes common to the golden age of advertising. This visual spectacle has nothing to sell you, and doesn't seek to dazzle the viewer with an empty visual spectacle, but seeks to remind them that love is possible for everyone to share.
