We’ve created a herd of evocative forms, perennially glowing, and responsive to the touch of passers-by. The shapes are high-density polyethylene (HDPE) tanks standing on powder-coated steel legs and lit from within by intense LEDs. Their form and arrangement allude to elements in the downtown Dallas
area: the building skyline, the extensive sculpture collection and the manner in which people travel.

Blessing Hancock owns Skyrim Studio Inc which focuses on site specific sculpture. She utilizes her BFA in Sculpture and MLA in Landscape Architecture to create innovative work for public spaces.
