This work "refers broadly to the function of a University. The title of the work is a metaphorical statement referring to the previous function of the Australian hardwood beams, which were recycled from a South Island railway viaduct. The structure also acts as a framing device through which to view the site, formally echoing the Victorian Gothic roof angles of the buildings nearby."
~ quote from Ali Bramwell et al. Otago Sculpture Trails : University Walk. Otago Sculpture Trust 2003.
“The work was designed to enhance the existing architecture. The bridge can be seen as a metaphorical symbol of unity between people or new goals. It is constructed in sections representing the different stages of life.”
