The DOT Urban Art Program partnered with the Hudson Square Connection and artists from Compleat Sculptor to sculpt three granite benches within a DOT pedestrian plaza on Varick Street between Broome and Watts Streets. The designs were carved into the top and sides of standard granite slabs reclaimed from other DOT sites.

Compleat Sculptor noted, "In an ever changing city, we are in constant motion; whether progression or retreating, moving through or crossing over. Motion and progress, intersect and bind us together in infinite measure…Formally, the highly polished raised lines [of the design] accentuated in contrast to the roughly hewn stone. Further accentuating a visual tension, the 'intersecting ropes' on the surface [served] to bind each stone. It is both restraining it as well as reinforcing it."
