Public Art Speaks Up on Peter Street

There’s a new speaker’s corner in town

Artists Jennifer Marman and Daniel Borins designed this 4.5-metre-tall speech bubble–shaped sculpture in collaboration with New York architect James Khamsi. Located near King and Peter, the metal statement-maker is the star of an urban plaza by Janet Rosenberg + Studio, which is located in front of the Hariri Pontarini–designed Pinnacle on Adelaide Tower. The cartoonish art work’s LED screen displays a looping video of abstract sequences inspired by the idea of things left unsaid.
