Contemplate connection to timeless cycles of nature - the earth spinning on its journey round the sun; the passing of days, seasons, years . . .
A circular area has a shallow pool of water at itís centre. A canopy covers half the area and is open to the south. Seats around the circumference are invitations to stay.
Sunlight reflects off the surface of the water to produce a perfect ellipse of light in the shadow of the canopy.
The reflection rises and sets with the sun, sparkling as wind or rain ripple the surface of the water; responding to passing clouds and the changing quality of light during the day.
