Gold in the Desert

Update on Leave Nothing, Take Only Gold Hearts

My environmental-ish Gold Hearts project was launched a couple of months ago and although I did not get as much of a response as I had anticipated, it was a great experience and helped me to understand the nature of my target audience now. I learned that the expectation of the viewer is instant gratification; that I must relay the message in seconds, not minutes. Also, I may have underestimated the nature of hikers in the desert to NOT take something found. The old saying does say take ONLY PICTURES, leave nothing behind.

I am thankful to those who did participate. Thanks for making my day and look out for other artistic ambushes in the future!
