Therefore I propose to complement the cylindrical Rotunda with a dance of curved lines in space - not an introvert form, but a continuous encircling movement of intersecting curves in space - directed outward instead of pointing to itself.

Because each of the curves is on a different plane the perspective will give exciting variations which tell something about the direction in which it is moving. The foreshortening will sometimes project a curve as a straight line, suggesting a rigidity which softens into a curve when the observer moves about - on foot or driving by the location.

the placement

The proposed grass area between the paths is the right location and it would be good to have the curves cross at least one footpath. In this way the person on foot will participate without having to make the choice to do so.

The sculpture should not be lifted up or be presented on any pedestal, plateau or plane which is of a different material than that of the area itself. The points on which the curves stand or enter the surface should be regarded by the gardener as if they were trees. The sculpture will be walking on the lawn like the people in the park - at least if it's not prohibited (for humans).
