Sun dial, Saue (Päikesekell Sauel), 2004
Saue Town is located just south of Tallinn City. Local government had reorganized the park which is used in festivals including the Midsummer Day. Their next idea was to make a sun dial that works with shadows of the standing person. Our proposal was to use it also as “a carpet in the park”, for sitting, playing, and picnicing. The rather free form was accepted by them as a shape of a leaf of oak, symbol of the town as well as the national tree of Estonia. The line of stainless steel plate on the pigmented concrete base, inscribed with names of donator, indicates time. The sun dial works between 7 to 18 during the daylight saving time.
