The A,A Sculpture at the M.D. Anderson Library on The University of Houston

The A,A is a sculpture by artist Jim Sanborn is located on the campus of the University of Houston. It was completed in 2004 at a reported cost of $240,000. The sculpture took a year to complete. The A,A is composed of portions of poems, novels, and prose from a number of different languages from different parts of the world. Some languages included on the art includes Arabic, Russian, Spanish, and Chinese. At night, a built-in light projector casts light through the sculpture. This causes the effect of illuminating the sculpture’s text onto the outside of the library’s walls. (source: wiki)
