Balance, 1999 windscreen glass sand-blasting & bronze “weight” sculptures

The artwork at this station weighs the various elements in the increasing complexity of our lives. The scales of justice represent the complexity of balancing the public and private interests which the judicial system and city government undertake on a daily basis. Family names sandblasted on the windscreen are of “regular folks,” the cornerstone of society, but always mobile. The bronze and concrete seats are metaphorical “weights” for the scales above, posing the constant weighing of options between humans, nature and the needs of society.
