We created this design as a finalist for a sculpture for the Hull St. Library in Richmond and Norfolk, VA. This inspiring and interactive sculpture engages the community by sourcing “words of wisdom” from members of the surrounding neighborhood. The inner layers represent words of wisdom passed through generations. The outer layer represents the interpretation one must go through to absorb and benefit from the words of wisdom. Viewers can spin the inner layer to read the phrases through the negative space of the outer layer representing the work of interpretation.
