His latest work is located at the University of Houston's Anderson Library. The “A Comma, A” is made from copper with cut out lettering that is illuminated from its centre and at night its multi-lingual phrases shine on its nearby surroundings. The text is comprised from poems, snippets of stories and prose from languages from all over the world, including Arabic, Russian, Spanish and Chinese.
Installation of the sculpture took over a year to produce with estimated cost of $240,000,
