Installation #7 of the Art around Roswell exhibit is a sundail but not the typical garden decoration that we have seen so many times before! This is a high-tech stainless-steel structure which includes Einstein’s explanation of photoelectric effect and how it explains the way the sundial works.
Set in Don White Park along the Chattahoochee River, the shining legs display a disk with Einstein’s face and the famous E=mc² equation on it. The face is actually the dial of the sundial and there are numbers around it so you can tell what time it is. I’m not sure the volleyball players pay it any attention but, this is an interesting piece if you look at it closely.
Frequent partners, artist Mary Ruden and metallurgist Robert Benfield team up their artistic and scientific talents to produce artworks that are also educational.
