You can walk between the stones are read the words which are generated from community involvement and sandblasted into it. The text is laid put as if one voice, the voice of the space which can be read and reread with each viewing so that the work does not age or to appear fully understood by individuals passing the work repeatedly. There are many stories within the piece - often conflicting and untrue - the beginnings of more urban myths.
