Words are the building blocks for thought. They give shape to our ideas. These cubes embody the energy and power of words within a structure of reason and order. Yet thought is without physical substance so these words dissolve in the shifting light, personifying the effervescence of our intellectual journey. The sculpture is 70% open space: a metaphor for an open, permeable mind. These words were selected intuitively by North Toronto Collegiate Institute students to be evocative without any single interpretation.
