‘Coming and Going’

Port Moody Evergreen Station Art

This public art project for the Translink Evergreen Line was completed under the guidance of  the Port Moody City of the Arts –Arts and Culture Committee.

The art depicts the life of the salmon from egg to smolt … the exodus of juvenile salmon to the ocean … then the adults’ return to the river years later to spawn and die – renewing the cycle of life. We leave home – to return again.  

– Soren Henrich – Artist’s Statement

The challenge was to make the design as simple as possible for ease of fabrication, final assembly and installation; maintaining a dynamic juxtaposition from a limited palette of colours, and a variety of large and small forms, with layers and depth.


Square One Paving negotiated the material fabrication with HUB Surface Systems and performed the installation.
