These six solid granite blocks weight no less than 55 tons, yet in Han's hands, they curve and flow with a rhythmic grace.Voids and gaps between the blocks allow people to walk through, around and in-between the artwork - it is a spatial play that encourages viewers to join in and participate. Even the wave-like blocks are positioned for people to enjoy as resting places and seats. Commissioned by SLF as an artwork for the public, these elements come together in a sculpture that invites interaction, exploration and discovery.
