Long Description:
Formerly Chelsea Park, this small park in Westminster, Colorado, USA was renovated and renamed Jessica Ridgeway Memorial Park in honor of the young girl who played here whose life was cut short by violence. More information about the case may be found at (visit link) , but I would rather focus on the healing aspect of this art piece.

Jessica loved 'knock-knock' jokes. These jokes were gathered by the city from Jessica's friends and schoolmates. To read all the jokes, the viewer must turn in an ever-smaller circle, much as we did as children when we just spun around for fun. The park is dominated by the color purple, which was Jessica's favorite color. Watch the video at (visit link) to hear the jokes and enjoy the kinetic wonder (about 2 minutes long).
