​Horizontal bands in varied and varying widths form a gentle organic volume. Stacked one on the next, these stainless-steel strips contain textual cutouts: a single word expressed in 11 languages spoken in the local community. The reflective metallic exterior surface is contrasted with an intensely blue matte inside surface. At night, colorful internal lights project the geometry and symbology onto the environment and the viewers, enveloping them as extensions of a single greater community and blurring the line between artwork and environment.
