Six life-sized stainless steel human figures occupy various points on the grand staircase in Jack Loucks Court.  Ascending an descending the foot traffic is encouraged to physically negotiate through the space of the artwork with the intention of arousing curiosity.
Upon closer examination of the sculptures, the passerby will see that each figure is in fact a life-size silhouette of an actual North Vancouver community member, that was interviewed by the artist.  The figures capture the physical likeness of the participant, and include insightful text about the individual's experiences during the mid to late twentieth century in North Vancouver.  
Their stories represent a snapshot in time conveying the richness and complexity found within a random group of community members.
