Das dasein ist Rund (“the being is round”)Gaston Bachelard
A space with no angles and rigid partitions, executed in soft felt material represents the making: a place of creativity and mindfulness. In the absence of furniture, soft to the touch, this space is an embodiment of roundness, tranquility and imagination.
Below it, the being is stripped down to its concrete core, serving strictly as a space to support the making and sustain the habitat. The being is hidden from the eyes of the observer and is only accessible after one’s encounter with the making.
The Sundial Folly is a concrete sphere that you can go inside
It was created by John Fung and Paul Figueiredo.
Installed in Harbour Square Park in 1995.
Viewers are welcome to come inside the steel structure wit some wood elements
It is made out of precast concrete and steel structure
There is a split in the middle of the sphere functioning as a sundial facing the South West of Lake Ontario
