From the plaque.

"In my work, I try to create challenges for myself. To have large forms balance in space, with no reasonable explanation to the naked eye, is an immense challenge. The answer of course lies in the carefully engineered, unseen infrastructure. From that point of view, balance enters into the realm of engineering. I've always been drawn to physics and chemistry and mathematics. The basics of physics exist in everything, even in music."
