... On the reverse side, paper tesserae were pasted piece-by-piece around the 2017 schedule to form an illuminated mosaic around the confluence of the Woonasquatucket River, Moshassuck River and Providence River, which sets the stage for every WaterFire lighting.

The dynamic opus palladianum arrangement was selected to lay out the mosaic, representing how people come together from all over the world to the city of Providence, how WaterFire is only made possible by the combined effort of thousands, and how at WaterFire, there is a place for everyone.

This booklet is featured with an accompanying concrete poetry poster, Kothbiro.
