Public art idea: a rock on a column for plaza seating.

Public art idea: a rock on a column for plaza seating.
But wait, it is more than a tasteful decoration: The sculpture is Asteroid Landed Softly by Kazuo Matsubiyashi, completed 1993. It is a sundial. Its timetelling gnomon casts a shaft of light (as opposed to a more typical shadow-casting gnomon). The seating area is the sundial's dial plate. Funfacts.

In downtown Salt Lake City, Utah, on May 31st, 2016, in "Gallivan Center" (a plaza owned by the Redevelopment Agency of Salt Lake City and developed in 1993), off the south side of 200 South, opposite Regent Street.
