Located at the entrance of the new All Abilities Playground in Dublin, California, this sculptural environment emphasizes our uniquely human ability to transcend difference and find common ground through conversation. The silhouetted human heads are symbolic of our humanity— both our differences and similarities. The sculptures are intentionally absent of gender and race. The artwork also includes words chosen by the community laser cut in metal and embedded in the surrounding plaza.


The goal of this project was to create an ADA compliant artwork which would be welcoming to people of all ages and backgrounds and which would endure intense public contact in the the playground setting. This was accomplished by working closely with the All Abilities Playground design team and fabricator Industrial stainless international.
