[CONTEST] Win a "Til Death Do Us Part" heart skull by Joshua Harker

THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED,  THANK YOU FOR PARTICIPATING! 

In celebration of Valentine's Day this week and to show off his love for the the Skull-A-Day community for supporting his past projects, Joshua Harker is giving away one of his recently created  "Til Death Do Us Part" heart skulls to one lucky reader.

Sculptor, inventor, imagination architect, digital adventurer, and troublemaker. Joshua Harker is one of the most recognized artists working in the 3D printing medium. He became known for "making the unmakeable" with his Tangles series which hold rank as the very first organic forms of such complexity to ever be created. He most recently became an internet sensation using crowd-funding to disseminate his art and currently holds the #1 & #4 most funded Sculpture projects ever on Kickstarter (Crania Anatomica Filigre & Anatomica di Revolutis). Joshua's work has appeared in TIME Magazine, WIRED, Huffington Post, Wall Street Journal, The Economist, MSNBC, TED Talks, National Geographic, Cool Hunting, Venture Beat, Boing Boing, as well as countless others.



PRIZE INFO:  "Til Death Do Us Part" heart skull in red.

Depicting the bittersweet experience of love & loss as well as suggesting that love is what you make of it. The anchor & chain are intended to symbolize the security of steadfast loyalty in stormy seas and that which keeps you from becoming aimlessly adrift. The arrow is love's tool of capture and the weeping tear symbolizes the pain of loss. The suspended ring demonstrates the promise of commitment. The skull is the symbol of the end of us all and the reminder of living in the present.  Dimensions: 4.5" x 2.0" x 7.2" (11.5 x 5.1 x 18.3 cm) Material: 3D printed polyamide (essentially a nylon/glass powder fused together with a laser)

I would take this skull on a date to my favorite local sushi restaurant - Mr. Mees. We would watch at the sushi bar, while they made our food. Then I would eat it all myself, as skulls do not eat. The skull would eat it's heart out!

I'd take it on my next big adventure. The last one was to Machu Picchu via the Inca Trail, but the next one won't be quite so far away for me. We'd go camping in the world's largest freshwater archipelago. We'd kayak amongst the Georgian Bay Islands and take in the glorious sunset before basking in front of a campfire and toasting some marshmallows.

Lauren Thrower said...

That scarlet skull would be worn at pelvis level and join me, and my full sugar skull make up, out to scare small children and receive disapproving looks from the elderly. Eventually we'd end up at an Art centre where we'd stand, defying anyone to try and move us and say we aren't meant to be part of the exhibition. Bored of the normal people, we'd head home, trash the bedroom and then I'd lovingly hang it from Satan's horns on my wall.

Jeanniebench said...

I would take this skull to my daughter in the hospital, where we could laugh at its arrogant threat of endings.

We would enjoy a few beers at Upright Brewery, located in the basement of an office building. They usually have some classic punk rock records playing and decks of trivial pursuit to pass the time.

The skull would go on a date with my husband and I to San Francisco. We'll go to the Mission to paint a mural with friends, then head to our favorite papusa spot. All the while taking pictures that will post to instagram and facebook. (side note: my husband just got a tattoo of the anchor on his foot to represent me and our soon to be born baby). :)

Kahuna Sue said...

I would take "Til Death Do Us Part" on a surprise flight to vegas...Grabbing our 57 convertible rental and cruising the strip for a while soaking up some Vegas sun. Hitting the voodoo lounge for a cocktail for two in a secluded booth *wiggles eyebrows* if ya know what I mean. After a bit o cheeky fun back to the strip to the drive thru chapel of love. We exchange vows then back to our room and some of that fancy shmancy ky lube...oh hell yeah I loooooove this piece.

Til Death Do Us Part and my Revolutionary Heart will make the perfect companionship in a winters cold night.... It's snowy here in Chicago... the wind blows strong and with it the the smell of love... shifting, from east to west, from north to south... Oh love, you are so close yet so far away! Lets have a date with candle lights, while the snow gently falls outside....

Patricia Turner said...

I would take Skully somewhere fancy, like the Red Lobster. Then we'd head over to a local cemetery where the tombstones are made with phosphorous, and bask in the glory of the moonlight and glowing graveyard, Skully with his face laying against my breast, listening to the rhythm of my heartbeat. Then, I guess I'd fry him an egg or something for breakfast. Speedivals1@yahoo.com

Cassandra said...

In my house on wheels (camper because of my fiance's job). Would make crab legs and homemade cheesecake. This year is in CO. Next year, who knows! Being newly engaged, it will be with us on our travels and then until our ultimate destination, Till Death Do Us Part.

Phul Devi said...

I would take this skeleton's heart with me to work as a history professor. It would be with me while I held office hours and counseled students individually; it would dazzle my senior seminar; dangle from my clothing as I deliver a lecture; and perhaps, nestle close to my own heart in a faculty meeting. Later, we could have some romantic downtime in front of the computer together, where she could inspire me in my writing.

I love this very deeply. ncaciola@gmail.com

Janet said...

I would take this Heart Skull to a romantic dinner with Lobster & Champagne, then we would go to a movie theater & sit in the back row so we can have some PDA in the dark... then off to a dark, little bar for a night cap; maybe some slow dancing -- then home to be alone :-)

Sage Sill said...

I would take this skull out to the cemetery that my great grandfather nine generations back Duncan McArther is resting. He was the 11th governor of Ohio. The cemetery is located at the top of a hill in the middle of Chillicothe, Ohio, with a beautiful view of the small city that was the first capital of Ohio. I would fix us a romantic meal of bacon stuffed grouse and fondue which we would eat on a blanket as we watched the sun set. After dinner we could talk a long romantic walk through tar hallow and see if any ghosties come out to see us. We would end the night with some chocolate covered crickets and ants. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grandview_Cemetery_(Chillicothe,_Ohio)

Debbie Waxman said...

My skull will not just go on a date with me, he will be going on a journey with me 'Till death do us Part'. This skull would mean so much to me. I have lost a son. Struggle in love and try to stay grounded as much as I can, well except when I travel overseas to visit my loved ones in England. Beautiful piece!

TJ Gau said...

I would give this treasure to my dear deserving aunt to take on a date of her choice. Her birthday is today and she does everything for our family! She has been the glue that has kept everyone together since her parents', my grandparents', passing. Your skilled artistry and her amazing heart have one thing in common...BEAUTY! I just know that she would LOVE it and it would not matter where they went.

AndeW said...

The skull and I would head to Vermont for a weekend of dating while competing in the Death Race. It would be on my hip as I trudged thru mud, water, up mountains and thru ravines, and watch me chop wood, carry rocks, perform dead lifts, and laugh while I suffer thru 1000's of burpees and squats. The when I'm done, it'll cheat on me with the skull trophy I'll get for finishing the race. Can't trust a skull anyways.

Definitely Hooters and a horror movie. It's a Valentine's tradition. :)

Dede Sabol said...

We would journey to the Indian Ocean where we would float out on a small skiff with an Organ Grinder and his monkey serenading us with funeral fugues. We would dine beneath the stars on saltine crackers and head cheese, menudo and pickled pigs feet, reciting our favorites by Edgar Allan Poe. It would be a cranial delight!

I will take this, and my husband, to a gallery opening featuring dark and obscure artists on valentines. Then we'd head home, where I would cook our favorite dish.

gossamerfaery said...

Where wouldn't I take this dark and divine heart?! Oh, if I won this, as John Keats wrote, I'd "swoon to death!" Every day with this would be a walk with the Romantics. I would start by taking it to the Bodies Revealed Exhibit currently on view. My boyfriend who tries to talk me out of anything that I find related to ships an/or encourages me to paint anything that is related to the sea, could come along, too! To see this fella hanging above my painting desk would make every day a date with my soul...

With such a gorgeous date, nothing would suffice, short of a night on Broadway - dinner, the hottest ticket in town to the best show, and apres show cocktails.

... and then a visit to see my etchings.

I would take this to my room and hang it over my bed to admire each and every day :)

thedarksiren said...

We would begin our date in the early morning, meeting for coffee at the Gypsy bean coffee house where we could enjoy getting to know one another over the wonderful aromas of chickory coffee, espresso, and almond pastries. I'd tell Skully all about the yearly Dia de Los Muertos celebration and parades in the area, and his smile would melt me from the get-go.

We would then travel into Ohio City where we would explore the West Side Market, a marvelous shopping experience and historical landmark in Cleveland. After buying the finest meats, cheeses, fruits, olives, and wines, we would head over to the various artsy neighborhoods, and marvel in the many installations therein.

Later in the day, I'd take Mr. Skull to Momocho for some tequila tastings, and munch on some guacamole stuffed with a marvelous center of goat cheese.

Our tongues will certainly loosen by this point, so why not take a romantic stroll along Lake Erie? I'd show Skully the Wagner statue, and explain how controversial it is in the area, hoping to impress him with my knowledge of musical history.

We'd surely wind up sitting on the rocks down by the pier, maybe make out while watching the gulls fight for the most up-to-date trashy delights. We might also explore how deep we're getting at this point, and toss that li'l anchor out into the waters for a test-run.

After lifting the anchor from the depths, we would then head back to my place where we would pop open a nice Malbec and exchange past love failures. A few tears might be shed, but music will help us through. We would spend the next couple hours sharing all the bands we like, and Skully would have no choice but to be awe-stricken by my massive vinyl collection.

We'd probably realize we drank too much, and although we'd munched on the goodies we bought earlier at the market, real sustenance would be in order. We may bicker a bit on this, but something tells me Skully would want a really romantic dinner. So we'd head to La Dolce Vita in Little Italy. The food there is divine, and it's Monday, so they have opera!

As we sit slurping on our spaghetti, I notice a beautiful young lady heading our way. I hear the beginnings of the "Habanera" from Bizet's Carmen, jump from my seat, and begin serenading Skully in my most sultry and amazing voice. It's a little shaky, being tipsy as I am, but he is absolutely smitten, and that young Chica turns away before she even had the chance with my Skully-wully!

We would end the night with a deep, passionate kiss, our hearts fluttering in our throats, and struggling with who will be the first to let go from this amazing embrace. I would feel our inner rhythms sync as the beginnings of forever stab our hearts simultaneously, knowing this time, it's the real deal.

Nele Schulze said...

I would take this skull on a "date" with me to the Death Race (www.youmaydie.org) in June 2013 where it would be with me when I push myself beyond my limits. It would be a source of comfort to me when I'm crying and want to quit. And it would give me strength and motivation to finish the race. By taking it with me on such a life changing ordeal the skull already steeped with meaning will become even more to me and will mean something different to me than anyone else.

I'd take him to Books a Million. I'd have a chai latte, he'd have coffee. We'd read magazines and I'd show him off to my friends. My husband would be very jealous. After that, we'd go see a movie and maybe get some ice cream.

We'd go to Voodoo Donuts (22 SW 3rd Avenue, "just south of the Burnside Bridge" in downtown Portland) and get a bag of maple and bacon bars, or maybe dirty snowballs, so we have extras to offer the various homeless as we stroll Burnside on our way to Powell's City of Books where we will peruse copies of "Love me or kill me" the collection of Sarah Kane plays, and "Famous Last Words" or perhaps "Skeletons of the Heart" by Pearl Mitchell. Good times.

The skull, my date and eye would go a concert. Most likely we will go see Nile as it is the next concert on the list.
Nice piece by the way! Thanks.

I would annoint this beautiful work of art with frankincense oil, wrap it in a soft silk scarf, and take it to the top of Pikes Peak here in my hometown of Colorado Springs. On the peak, we would scatter the ashes of my beloved friend Keith who chose to leave this world last year. Pleasure and pain...such is love. barbra.gibb@gmail.com

I would take this date on my first Valentines date in FOREVER! We are going to my favorite 5 star restaurant that I never get to go to but going to because this is a special occasion! Then later we're going home and going to probably be in bed for the rest of the night if you understand what I mean...then in the morning we're going for massages and then to another favorite place to eat. So that's a really long date but hey, it's going to be so much fun and time for lovin!

krumbee said...

I would take this awesome skull on an awesome night out with my daughter and my friends to the Kid Rock concert. We will have a blast dancing and rockin' all night long! Afterwards we'll hit an all night restaurant and laugh about how much fun we had!! It will be the best night out ever!!

HeavySilver said...

We go out as a family (of 6)for V-Day so we'd take it to our favorite place to eat "Masa's House" then stop as usual to place in the fountains by SCOMA....before all the kids 'get too cool' for it.

Living Dead Girl Nicole said...

I just got out of the hospital and am recovering from surgery on medical leave so I can't take it outside on a date. So I would enjoy it at home with my husband. Looking at it will remind me of how much he is my rock and how he has been there for me during this surgery and everything else for the past 15 years. We had a masquerade Halloween wedding and it would also stand to remind me of our special day.

it will go on a date with me & my hubby to our sofa to eat our heart shaped pizza & some ice cream.

Camille Terry said...

I would take it to Uptown Sedona and sit on a bench and talk to it. When people asked me about it, I would say it was a physical manifestation of my psychic tattoos and ask if they would like a aura reading from it.

Jessica said...

i would carry thee down
to the sea,the rocky shores of Maine-
we would sit a while with empty smiles
and reminisce
of time
that ticked...
and things
we miss
like sinking ships
and aimless drifts
and when we had too much to think,
we'd do it all again.

Melissa said...

Since I work at a florist shop for Valentine's week, I am super tired after work, busy dealing with all the last minute Calentine orders. I would ask if we could stay homeand order in, and enjoy margaritas and maybe a foot massage.

Deanna "plushyskull" said...

I would take my skull date to the Mutters museum in Philly! Then maybe the melting pot. But don't worry, I won't dip his arrow into the gooey goodness. Then I would take him to bed with me. My other skulls will probably be jealous of his sheer superiority. This is a risk I'm willing to take!

Heather Wilcox said...

I. Would hang it from the rearview mirror so I could enjoy it all the time AND. It's great advertising for him! Matthewwilcox@sbcglobal.net

Deanna "plushyskull" said...

Sounds epic!

Ottshotz Photography said...

Well I would take this on a date to where I met my husband to see a show and hang in my VIP booth at the Junk Yard (concert venue) After the show I would take it to where we had our wedding reception and annually visit, Frankies Tiki Bar in Las Vegas. Since we have weathered many storms and stayed together and are still alive post, cancer, blindness in one eye, deafness in one ear...it's a fitting symbol of our love.

Ottshotz Photography said...

This is an amazing piece, and we are now huge fans of the work and creative genius.

Michele Emory said...

I would take this skull to all of significant places that loved happened good or bad. Those hand full of spots on the planet where who I am in my soul happened.The place I was most broken, the place my heart was frozen, thawed, opened, taken, and kept. Such an artful symbolic totem worn to those places would allow it to be a unifying reminder of all that has made me who i am and a vessel of all the energy that will help create who I become. Please let me fill it with my memories. memory32@windstream.net

teresa young said...

We would go out to my favorite cemetery and share a box of wine. Nothing but the best for my special skull.

I would take this skull on a road trip from TX to CA in April. I'd take pictures with it at every stop so that it could remember what fun we had.

Midnyte Reader said...

I would wear this as a pendant or a belly chain. Where? Everywhere of course.

Thank you for the contest!

tattoogurl1969 said...

I would take "'Til Death Do Us Part" to the quaint little Cajun restaurant where I met the love of my life. We would drink Rum Runners and eat crawfish and beignets. Since my "love" only used me to marry her so she could play with my heart at will then throw it away like it was a piece of trash, then leave me without a word, I no longer have a heart. I need this one to fill the void.

Celine said...

We would go back to nature, for a walk in a rainforest on a sunny afternoon, listen to its surprising sounds and enjoy the colours. At midnight I would leave you against a massive trunk and go my way down the river.
(hey that's fictional, right, we would never separate for real!)

Raven kurushimi said...

I would take this skull to the secret lair my brothers an I built out of fallen trees and branches in the forest behind our mother's home. It looks like a giant tent. Inside we would enjoy a picnic on a classic plaid blanket, sitting by the hand- made fire pit and enjoying the sounds of the forest as the moon's light fell in rays through the small spaces between the branches of our shelter.

Winona Hensley said...

I would take this beautiful heart to a place of new beginnings....our new house!! My husband's Valentine's Day surprise is news that we will be moving into our new home!! Finally he will have a closet!! I'm a bit of a clothes horse and have stuffed the current closet to capacity. Well.. beyond capacity. So he's been reduced to having his clothing kept in various baskets.. I now vow to respect his closet space and not allow my clothing to trespass into his territory... :)
Our children are super excited about having their own rooms!! We have 3 children and 1 adult as I like to say... My oldest daughter is 20.. My youngest daughter is 3. My son is 12 and I have another daughter who is 9..I realize now time flies it seems like yesterday my oldest was just 3...I vow to appreciate the moments I have now.. Good and bad.. I've recently realized that as you look back on your youth even the lowest points in life have meaning and an unexpected beauty..
So for me the perfect place to take this heart is HOME... To be a part of my family,my future, my life and all that we make of it...
I have the most perfect spot picked out... On my husband's side of the closet!! :P

Janet said...

I would take this Heart Skull to a romantic dinner with Lobster & Champagne, then we would go to a movie theater & sit in the back row so we can have some PDA in the dark... then off to a dark, little bar for a sexy night cap... maybe a little slow dancing -- then home to be alone :-)

Leave a Legacy Not a Footprint said...

My husband and I would take this beautiful piece of art to the very spot we exchanged our vows on our first anniversary. We chose to exchange our vows with just him and I; the celebrant the only other human around. We wanted to be surrounded by nature, focused only on each other and our love for each other. We unfortunately did not get to take any pictures on the day as we wanted to be married on the beach, even though Hurricane Sandy was in full effect. This beach has always been a meaningful spot for us. We plan to go back every year on the day, Til Death Do Us Part And Beyond.

I would use it in every glamour portrait - especially with cleavage (tastefully so) interplay. Draped around a neck, bicep or chest. I think it would work fine in colour or B&W. It would be more than a prop, more of a touchstone or signature of the momento mori that is every while-I-am-young photo I have ever taken.
I wish to make it clear that photography students are NOT going to be involved as models.

Congrats on finding the technology to meet your hyper-detailed vision!

Nagzter said...

I think a picnic in the cemetery would be fun!

cathy alvarez said...

We would do the ghost tour of Old Town. The oldest part of Albuquerque and just hang out.

Maux said...

I would take this for a ride around Tampa Bay because of the pirate history and celebrations. I would photograph it in front of the pirate ship, the pirates grotto, Old Tampa Bay, and Jules Verne/Ballast Point Park, documenting the pieces travels - uniquely photographed, of course. :) Most importantly, my last stop would be at my fathers house. A seafaring man who taught me the constellations in case I ever had to navigate by the stars. He also taught me that if I take from the ocean then I must give back. Since the piece invokes a bit of pirate-skullery, but also in the shape of a heart, it only seemed fitting. Dad played pirates with all of his buddies in the USCG. Hence, these were my thoughts, instantly. Good Luck to all.

Mark Worden said...

would set up a Blind date with this skull & my Girlfriend. She likes skull's & the skull would find her more interesting than Me.
