The piece of public art is in circular form; there is no starting or finishing point. It represents eternity, and wholeness; 12 colorful metal circles fixed on the columns will make a circular movement every hour. Originally the columns were irrelevant, but they now form part of the artwork.

This piece combines transportation and time. It turns the entire public space into a work of art.
