Photos of “Nomade” by Jaume Plensa at Pappajohn Sculpture Park in DesMoines. Below is from the museum’s entry on the piece:

Jaume Plensa describes individual letters as components that have little meaning on their own, but blossom into words, thoughts, and language when combined with other letters. Plensa’s letters offer a metaphor for human culture, in which a person alone has limited potential, but when formed into groups or societies, becomes stronger.
