Sun Dial  University of Western Australia

Close detail of the finished mosaic surface, a 'translation' of the original painted design.

The sun dial 'Hours to Sunset' was completed earlier this month, and the good news is that it's accurate when it comes to telling time (thanks to the calculations of our technical expert, Peter Kovesi - and just as well, because it's hard to adjust the angle of a wall!). You can see more about this project, including a short film about its installation at UWA's sun dial blog: http://hourstosunset.com
