Trace by Jill Anholt Studio
Trace consists of a series of brightly colored vertical markers located along the boardwalk at Totem Lake Park. The artwork is inspired by the incredibly rich and diverse range of wildlife that occupies Totem Lake Park. Each single art component appears as a kind of whimsical sculptural form when seen in isolation, however when viewed from a certain perspective, each pair of components align to form a recognizable outline of a bird, fish or animal species that inhabits the Totem Lake wetland. Trace encourages visitors to pause and look deeper into the landscape, enhancing their understanding and curiosity for Totem Lake Park’s ecology, with the hope that a sense of stewardship and care for the preservation of this precious ecosystem can be fostered.
