About Helping Hands
The intent of the Helping Hands installation was to create something that was useful, interactive, and playful. The original concept was to have arms coming out of the ground, providing additional hands to hold your coffee, your bags, and more. The ‘hand’ – a universal form and gesture – became the focus of the design, which evolved to feature a giant seat, creating a more prominent and inviting presence to the installation. The final product is made out of a single sheet of 3/8” thick steel and weighs approximately 500 pounds.
