Soar by Hooman Mehdizadehjafari

Soar 1Year: 2021

Material: Stainless steel, blackened stainless steel, copper, corten steel

Dimension: 4.9’ X 4.9’ X 17’

Location: City View Park

Inspired by the oldest living creature in Eastern North America, the public art “Soar” inherited its form from the Eastern White Cedar.

This 17-foot-tall metal sculpture reflects the rich natural heritage of the region, in particular the Niagara Escarpment.

The diversity of materials used creates a beautiful play of colours that can often be seen in nature and alludes to the diverse and united community of Burlington. “Soar” is a reflective mirror of the rich natural heritage of the site and celebrates the gracious and honourable ambition of appreciating and protecting the environment and ensuring its passing on to future generations.

The applied words THROUGH – NATURE – WITH – LOVE – WE – THRIVE in Soar, create an infinite circulation that reflects the ultimate message of this piece: by loving our nature, valuing and protecting it, we may grow and thrive within it peacefully.
