A Love You Can't Live Without, wire sculptor David Zalben's installation, is billed as 41 days of lust, romance and relationships. From June 6 through July 16, he'll be writing prose in wire graffiti in the main windows of ArtCenter/South Florida.

“Each evening, I will write about my many muses, love, lust and other related subjects,” said Zalben in a statement about the project.  “Aside from the physical challenge of bending 16-gauge wire into intricate lettering, there’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.”

After 41 days of bending wire into heartfelt words into a 12- by 12-foot white space, viewers will have "literally and figuratively a window into Zalben’s soul."
