A Line Meant (Circular) Alignment (Reasoning)

Bob Hansman and Ben Hoffmann | 2004

North Hanley MetroLink Station

The dual nature of this piece is apparent in everything from its double connected name to its double connected location and gesture to the fact that two artists with the same initials collaborated in its creation. The intention of the artists is to blur the lines between art and architecture, filling the space in a way that moved the viewer through it. Adhering to a rigorous organizational system, the artists ensured that the elements outside and the elements inside shared a common axis and alignment so that it became a united piece, beginning in one place and completing itself in the other.
