The Messengers

This piece consists of five kinetic sculptures in the form of stylized messenger pigeons bearing the names of the five senses of their tails, and ten limestone benches arranged in concentric circles. The benches in the outer circle are engraved with the words “THINK ABOUT HOW YOU COMMUNICATE.” The combination of this phrase, the senses, and the pigeons is intended to provoke the viewer to contemplate rudimentary tools of human interaction and how they employ these tools daily.
