Oculus is the Latin word for eye. The eye, or oculus, is a folded spiral opening that creates a three dimensional fulcrum for the Sun’s light. The Oculus displays a dramatic, highly visible and precise pinpoint of light within the shadow of the stone, which is projected onto the ground. Replacing the gnomon at the center of a traditional sundial, the sculpture invites us to experience the harmony and certainty that is celestial mechanics. With the projected light we can observe the rotation of the earth and our spiral journey through time
