"A space for quiet contemplation"

A hemispherical shell is cut with the sunpaths for the summer and winter solstices and this portion is removed. The sun shines on the central pool and is reflected into the shadow in the underside. Inscribed lines record the passage of the hours days and years.

Water is pumped up and down the central stainless tube to create a constant flow of circular ripples that act as a "kinetic bullseye" image in reflection. At a larger scale this may incorporate seating.
