At the Nest-Raising, participants could view community writings engraved on the the metal plates that line the inner side of the Wing Bench. The engraving in the chrome-plated brass, made the writings show as gold-colored lettering on a silver-colored, reflective background.
After the Nest-Raising, the remaining chrome plates to fill in between the writings were added. Each reflective surface can catch the light, reflecting the surroundings and reflecting light patterns back onto the sculpture.
--------- Outer Feathers ---------
The outer cladding of the Wing Bench is galvanized steel, mounted and folded in a pattern inspired by the arrangement of feathers on a bird's wing.
