This design consists of a newspaper shaped form, appearing as if blown by the wind. The motion and shape of this everyday urban sight has been captured in stainless steel. The exterior of the form is covered in an etched display of historical and contemporary newspapers. The arrangement in columns is to simulate an actual newspaper.
At ground level, the form rises from a mosaic base of scattered newspapers which are flush with the pavement and which are deeply etched to produce a non slip sufrace. The etched stainless steel newspapers are arranged in chronological order producing a history of events as a pathway. This would infor the potency of walking through history.
