Through the use of verticality and various color fabric, the work aims to evoke the ships masts and flags that were found at the nearby Moodyville docks, where Africans, Chileans, Polynesians, Chinese, Americans, English, Irish, Scots, Swedes, Norwegians and Indigenous people worked. The sculpture also speaks to the need to devise, by any means possible, common visual anchors and landmarks.
