VIEWS

The sculpture is a diagonal stepped form resembling a tapered staircase with a pattern cut into the material that casts a changing shadow silhouette on the front of the building. It is meant to enliven the flat planes and geometry of the building, and to suggest an active movement – like running up and down stairs. The red spheres are meant to resemble the sequence of a bouncing ball, a symbol of play and good spirits.
