Peoria - Blessing Hancock
Title of Art: BIOTA"Biota is an illuminated sculpture that draws inspiration from the unique conditions of the site and contextual surroundings," artist Blessing Hancock said about the art she created for Peoria Station.
"The sculpture gives the impression of a biological form that has grown and replicated itself through a self-similar growth process. Biota is an elegant abstraction of a living organism," she said.
The art is in the central bus roundabout at the station. It's 23 feet high and 1-5 feet wide. Biota will be made up of these materials:
- LED lighting
