From the artists’ statement:Â This artwork is multi-faceted, and like Dickinsonâ€™s poem, replete with possibility: It brings beauty to the streetscape both day and night; prompts discovery and exploration through language, form, and materials; and resolves existing functional and circulation issues within the space. . . During sunny afternoons, sunlight casts the poem across the pavement inside the courtyard, making possible multiple readings and interpretations. . . As it transforms the landscape, the â€œiâ€ becomes a long-standing invitation to the community. It welcomes passersby into the courtyard by creating a place to rest and reflect, a place to socialize and interact, and a place to simply observe the interplay between light, shadow and street life.
Poem selected: Â I dwell in possibility (#657)Â by Emily Dickinson Â
