Local artist Y.C. Lozano, known for her paintings of faceless children and a blue dog, is taking part in One Spark with entry #421. #IMJAX, Lozano’s project’s title, is explained as “a public art project that celebrates the people who make up Jacksonville.” Located in Hemming Plaza Skyway, #IMJAX is an interactive installation where users step-up to a life-size red and white silhouette and scan a QR code with their smartphone. The code gives information on a random person in Jacksonville. #IMJAX aims to combine public art with social engagement and technology, so the people of Jacksonville can get to know each other better and feel a cohesion throughout the city.
