Abstract Sculpture: Annual Reconfiguration
Annually in the early Spring, a crane lifts and pulls apart the two halves of the Abstract Sculpture, a split rhomboid dodecahedron made of stainless steel and aluminum, to create a new sculptural shape.
The annual configuration of the Abstract Sculpture is symbolic of all who pulled away from their country of origin and came to these Massachusetts shores, establishing themselves in new and different ways.
"Unlike static cenotaphs and monuments, the Abstract Sculpture...
does what so many others do not; it represents life..."
The changing nature of the shape each year - coupled with children running and laughing
along the Labyrinth and through the Fountain - facilitates the development of memories
while allowing remembrances of the past."
