This unusual composition was designed by world-famous sculptor and architect Maya Lin and executed with the assistance of Hobbs Fountains, her frequent collaborators.  Commissioned by the Monroe Center in Grand Rapids, Mich., and called “Ecliptic” by Lin, it consists of two bookended outdoor displays – one an absolute-granite disk draped by a paper-thin flow of water, the other a circular fountain with a fog generator that conjures constantly changing visual effects.
