This light sculpture symbolizes peace, togetherness, youth, and diversity, using light to manipulate words symbolizing the need to spread more humanity. It is an eight-foot tall sculpture whose seamless circular formation symbolizes peace and togetherness. Built by Ramm Design, reminding people that the world is far from the day where everyone is treated equally.
“My hope is for this installation to be a tangible reminder to each and every one of us to think about humanity, and try to understand what others may be going through,” says Ujiri “Whenever we see the sculpture, made up of words that represent humanity, may we take a minute to pause and reflect upon the connections that unite us all.
In the wake of a historic civil rights movement that confronted racism and called for social justice, the Humanity Art Installation aims to engage visitors and citizens in a dialogue about how the world could be made more kinder.
Guest can view this art installation now through Oct. 31 2021 all day outside the Sir John A. Macdonald Plaza.
