American artist Bill Starke has completed this new public sculpture for the Orlando Events Center, the home of the basketball team The Orlando Magic. Our Journey is a tribute to the team’s values of cooperation, decision-making and achievement, and features eight life-size human figures made of aluminium, making their journey up the side of the 97-foot wall on brightly coloured ladders.

‘Human beings interacting, colliding, cooperating, striving and achieving are the themes I portray in my sculpture. My observations and interpretations of the human condition are meant to be both humorous and thought provoking,’ says Starke.
