In an excerpt from an artists's statement " . . . the stelas are also meant to bring peace to troubled human beings whose lives are very short in comparison to the life of the earth." This work and a few others are integrated into the landscaping of the pathways along the riverbank as a kind of thoughtful animation of place. This particular park appears very natural and shows little evidence of the planning, roadbuiding and landscaping that went into its creation - unlike many inner city parks which appear more like architecture because of the high volumes of people who use them.
