Vancouver Biennale Art, WE, 2008
This feature installation is one of the compositions in the 2009-2011 Vancouver Biennale, WE, 2008 by Jaume Plensa. The 16 foot larger-than life figure is made up of characters from eight alphabets, Latin, Greek, Russian Cyrillic, Hebrew, Hindi, Japanese, Arabic and Chinese. The painted stainless steel sculpture, draws us away from the daily distractions of a constantly bustling city and helps us appreciate our linguistic differences.
