In Caroline Monnet's work 'The Flow Between Hard Places,' the undulating edges of this monumental sculpture represent the sound waves created in uttering the word pasapkedjinawong (“the river that passes between the rocks”) in Anishinaabemowin, as spoken by Anishnaabe Elder Rose Wawatie-Beaudoin. Monnet discusses the importance of different types of monuments, movements, and the power of travelling distances to be heard.
