Jumping Into The World: Hamilton Public Library
The images represent figures jumping into a swirling constellation of handprints, each composed of tiny dots, or stars, that represent the galaxy of our shared universe, and our shared humanity. The handprints allude to petroglyphs that have been found in prehistoric sites. The handprints represent anonymous individuals working cooperatively, and provide a metaphor for community. Spinning around the panel’s galaxy are spheres that represent distinct fields of study that can be explored within any library.
