This installation at Quark Park reflects the understanding that the basis of human time telling is the sun. The park is designed as a place of quiet reflection, (we always thought for grandparents and their grandchildren), allowing visitors to observe the passage of time through tracking the sundial’s shadow as it moves across the site. A bench is provided for this observation and observers are encouraged to follow the sun’s shadow as it tracks across the wall to the west of the path; chalk is provided to mark your own observations. The installation is designed as a garden to remind us that our sun supports all of the life on earth. The shadow indicates the time of day in Eastern Standard Time ignoring our artificial manipulations of time each summer. Accompanying explanations illustrate the geometry behind a sundial, and a deeper explanation of the physics of the Sun.  This installation is the product of the combined efforts of:
