The artist's glass windscreen designs incorporate world maps with each continent's landmass outlined in blue and further defined by vertical white and grey lines curving through the maps representing the world's time zones in 5 minute increments. The shadow play here is conditioned by flux and time and will be exaggerated as the sun passes through the glass, lengthening and shortening the shadows throughout the day. The art on the metal cladding at each shelter column further mimics the linear nature of her art.
