The 999 tile pieces flutter gently in the wind, occasionally making sounds as they gently touch the concrete cast walls of the structure’s stair tower. Reaching approximately 44′ above the ground, the piece is 14.5 feet wide x 28 feet high x 2.5 inches deep and made from recycled traffic signs, the signature of Boris Bally’s work for over two decades.


Surface Artwork Selected by artist and approved by gallery, client and also the Maryland Arts Commission


The piece was designed by Boris Bally and has been HUMANUFACTURED® (hand-fabricated) by himself and Project Manager Rob Boyd, Assisted by Brandon Bruzzi over an eight-week-period.

Additional Information

The kinetic qualities create a stir of gentle movement when breezes move the tiles.
