​The artist team created four different series of silhouetted, powder coated, stainless steel figures. The figures are installed on the retaining walls of the concrete overpass structure. The artists also created a landscape patterned that is molded into the concrete walls. In each series, the figure is repeated four or five times in different postures. The simple sequences depict the figures jumping and the illusion of motion is conveyed through the repetitive shapes.
