From the artist:
Matthew Hoffman, based in Chicago, worked closely with Sharon & Peter Exley from ArchitectureIsFun to create a variety of panels and pieces throughout the library.
The Vortex sign was made of cast off pieces from his studio. The piece is left raw and unfinished, matching with the urban feel of the skateboards in the Teen Area. Also in the teen area, Hoffman came up with "Think Epic" to be grandly displayed as a chain drape covering the windows.
