“Limits of Spoken Language: Congeries” by Jarrett Hawkins is located in the newly renovated Risman Plaza. This abstract piece is made of Corten steel. Metaphorically, this sculpture depicts a visual language of physical objects. Repetition, and varied placement of the elements, implies a dialogue of form. Precision, ambiguity and conflict all exist within the composition. Movement and change are implied within the static object. The sculpture has many vantage points, as with conversation amongst a crowd.
