The sculpture was created as part of the 1977 Three Rivers Arts Festival Sculpturescape program. The work originally resided at the University of Pittsburgh near the Hillman Library. Pittsburgh now looks out over the city in Frank Curto Park.

The sculpture is playful with several long aluminum rectangles intermingling with one another.
