"Meaning is a mercurial thing, fluid its power to reveal universes of understanding within any moment. Rarely inert or concrete in its reality, what a work of art communicates to its audience is conditioned by the context of its encounter, changing in its perception for each individual who engages in the experience of it. With the best works of art meaning is something more densely woven. This sculpture we are gathered to witness today transcends any single declarative description or linear logic, but rather provokes questions of the viewer's interior self, of what we know of our life's purpose, of what we dream our most radiant selves to be." Excerpt of speech by John Weeden at the dedication of this work on January 18, 2014
