Designed, fabricated and installed a variety of stainless steel sculptures, tuned musical instruments, and fence for a children’s park in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. The interactive sculptures were designed for children to climb on and explore. The name, Homophone, coupled with over 800 pavers engraved with homophone word pairings throughout the park, encourage children and adults to learn about wordplay and some of the anomalies of language.
