A public art commission for a new police station in downtown Los Angeles. The idea started with a fingerprint, a standard scientific device useful for police work, yet something that also represents our individuality and is intimately a part of each of us. One fingerprint will be enlarged to create the paving pattern for the plaza. Enlarged to this scale the lines of the print take on a topographic quality. Sitting on top of the paving will be a number of internally lit cast resin blue benches; each holding within them a number of differently scaled fingerprints traces.
