September 2018 - Toronto ON

I attended a Heritage Toronto plaque unveiling this week at Metro Hall and as I left I walked past this piece of art. I worked in this area so it is not the first time I've taken photos of it, but still had to take another one even though I didn't know what the challenge would be today.

Created by Micah Lexier, it consists of 25 custom-made aluminum ladders of various heights. The rungs of each ladder holds different words that have been waterjet-cut out of a bar of aluminum. Each of the 350 separate rungs is a word selected from the "Synopsis of Categories" section of Roget's Thesaurus. The work merges an image of physical construction (ladders) with the elements of intellectual construction (words).

Gives new meaning to "looking up" a word!
