The sculpture’s five elements relate to five points:
1. Structure: Luminist structure stresses the horizontal in space.
2. Measure: 1:1.618 is an abstract ideational order.

3. Light: Luminist light tends to be cool and hard.
4. Silence: Luminist silence implies presence through thereness rather than activity.
5. Size: intimacy is the luminous scale.

“One Two Five is a pivotal piece in the Architecture Fields at Art Omi,” says Art Omi: Architecture Director Warren James. “Up close there is a delicate intimacy to One Two Five and one can see an implied monumentality from afar.”
