About the artwork

The grounds of the Living Arts Centre are home to a three-part narrative installation by Canadian artist Stacey Spiegel. These sculptures (beginning with Book Wall, then Pool of Knowledge, and ending with Data Wall) all address the notion of “change” in society and the economy, from an industrial age to digital age.

Book Wall is a large stainless steel sculpture, depicting stacked books. The artwork is a visual embodiment of knowledge in the 20th century and an homage to the deliberate study and reading of books, encyclopedias, periodicals and newspaper.
