The plaque reads..

Self Expression is the basic human activity that embodies our individuality, and the energy behind it has led to man’s greatest achievements.

Spintronic’s beauty is derived from dynamics that electrons can create when acting under the influence of electromagnetic forces. Yest the significance of the design may be in the enery and movement upward that reflects expansion, growth, and even joy. The colors created by shifts of lights through the unique glass are also symbolic of the vivesity and changes wityhin a community and its people.

Spintronic was chosen as the Art component to the sculptures to grace the William J. Donovan Bridge to acknowledge the importance of self expression in this case, the arts, to the community.
