Public Art —

Becoming is a work that embodies the transformation every immigrant goes through as we leave our native lands and code switch and adapt to new conditions.

Tectonically expressed as a flexing arch form, it offers a gateway that is emblematic of the liminal space that every immigrant occupies and embodies a journey into the unknown and a return to roots in the process of finding a new l space to call home.

It is set in the city of Surrey, in British Columbia, Canada, characterized by its multi-national demographics of Surrey was important to propose an artwork that celebrates the process of becoming oneself, expressing the transmutation of people through cultures and lands as an elegant curve that twists and turns, and always returns to the ground, creating an opening for others to traverse, giving them a view of changing colors as they move through it.

Sculpted with strands of extruded, anodized aluminum, Becoming is a visual path designed to welcome interaction and generate a sense of wonder.
