Description of Work:
A large earthen-coloured concrete ellipse is inset with three circular components. One circle is the Chinese calendar, another is a pond into which water flows, and the last is a miniature garden of native plants. The ellipse contains the pond and the planted area, just as nebula are containers, and interacts with the calendar as if the ellipse and circle were engaged gears.
It is not always easy to 'nest' a bit of nature in the bleakness of the modern shopping mall - there is never the space or the money allocated to introduce, or retain, a substantial piece of local nature. We have placed a 'nest' of native plants in the central circle as a reminder of what was once here.
