This 2010 photograph shows a lighting sculpture titled "Positive Attracts" by Edwin Cheong. It explores the belief that the optimism of our mental state of mind (4th Dimension) can effect a positive outcome of our physical state (3rd Dimension). The installation consists of the artist's nine favourite optimistic visionaries (Heroes) who have used their mental state to effect positive outcomes in their physical world. Inspired by songs such as "Rainbow Connection" and "Somewhere over the Rainbow", these Heroes incubate dreams and will "deposit positivity" to the public as they draw near to the Heroes. Famous quotes written at the base of each Hero will enable the public to guess who they are. Title devised by Library staff.
