A family of six sculptures placed throughout the plaza between the Palo Alto Main Library and Arts Center. The evolving series increases in complexity and expresses growth through a sequence.  The sculptures are made up of multi-lingual phrases collected from the community, cut out of steel and welded together in three-dimensional lantern-like forms.

Blessing Hancock owns Skyrim Studio Inc which focuses on site specific sculpture. She utilizes her BFA in Sculpture and MLA in Landscape Architecture to create innovative work for public spaces.
