Historical Context:
"This piece, World Kin, is conceived of as a kinetic sculpture centered around a symbol-cube, each surface represents one of the Earth's populated continents: Africa, North America, South America, Europe, Asia, and Australia... Each plaque will consist of a low-relief sculpture based on signs and symbols derived from archaeological and anthropological studies of the indigenous people of that continent. The symbol-cube will be movable, so that viewers of the piece can select and position the surface they wish to view... It is intended to serve as a reminder to students, faculty, staff and visitors, of the rich cultural history of the world in which Grand Valley State University has a global presence." -Richard E. Paschke
