A pyramid of steel blocks sits at the foot of the Westside Classroom Building on the Westside Campus of Western Connecticut State University.  The east and west sides of the sculptures are constructed of stainless steel and reflect the rising and setting sun.  Cor-ten steel makes up the north and south facings and, over time, rusts to a deep earthy brown, creating a striking contrast between the two materials.  The sculpture measures 9 feet high by 13 feet wide by 18 feet long.  The scale and stepping arrangement of the artwork reflects the architecture of the building nearby.
