Description:  Artist Don Wilson intended this sculpture as "just a human kind of presence in its relation to human beings in the environment." Originally installed in 1977, Interlocking Forms was one of eleven sculptures that were added the downtown transit mall to make it more people oriented and attractive. In 2008 the piece was moved to its current location as part of the Portland Mall Revitalization Project and continues to engage passersby in its bustling downtown environment.
