Located in the East Courtyard fountain of the Solano County Government Center, this winning proposal for a public art competition explores the concepts of history, transparency, and balance, and juxtaposes layers of the county’s history on its surface. The 8ft x 20ft x 22ft steel and glass

structure explores the relationship of the public to its government, insofar as it reflects a delicate dynamic whose nature is always in the balance. It uses the quality of transparency itself as it relates to a most basic and fundamentally democratic ideal.
