Suspended Mahogany Stick Construction
Only those letters in the name ‘Northern Kentucky University’ were used to create this construction. 18,000 feet of mahogany sticks produced over 66,000 individual sticks glued and tied by hand. There are 196 different acrylic and vinyl hand-painted surfaces, each having 6-8 painting applications. Over 3,500 hand-tied knots form and connect these letters to one another creating a diverse but united song of perseverance and possibility.
