Miami artist David Zalben presents â€œA Love You Canâ€™t Live Without,â€ a free-wheeling poetic installation about love, sex and relationships. On June 6, Zalben will begin writing prose in his signature wire-graffiti style in the main windows of ArtCenter/South Florida. Adding verses to his poem every night, the storefront space will be completely engulfed by an unfettered stream of risquÃ© consciousness by July 16, 2012. â€œEach evening, I will write about my many muses, love, lust and other related subjects,â€ said Zalben. â€œAside from the physical challenge of bending 16-gauge wire into intricate lettering, thereâ€™s the psychological pressure of creating something in public that is normally a private process, and of sharing meaningful thoughts that are an honest expression of my state of mind.â€Â Zalben is by nature a controlled individual who gravitates toward structured lines and form. The spatial constraints of the 12 x 12-foot window will force him to twist and squeeze words into limited white space, breaking free from his traditionally linear and clean wire text. â€œEven the works that seem chaotic are organized, so haphazardly installing words in rapid succession in any manner will be truly against my nature.â€Â After 41 days at the end of the installation process, viewers will have literally and figuratively a window into Zalbenâ€™s soul. In a jungle of wire wordage, his thoughts will be one part reality â€“ based upon his real experiences â€“ and another part fantasy; all will be exposed as a long laundry list of feelings, allowing onlookers to follow, critique and enjoy the ride of Zalbenâ€™s daily musings.
