True Local Time

A sundial’s accuracy depends on when and where it exists, and Amy Sansbury Manning's True Local Time sundial was calibrated for its presence at the Scottsdale Waterfront during Canal Convergence 2016.To activate True Local Time, a participant would stand at the center of the dial to mark their location at the Scottsdale Waterfront on the map. As the shadow fell across the Valley map, it would tell the time according to significant landmarks on the network of mountains, river and canals, and major roads that tie us all together. The sundial vinyl graphic was sponsored in part by Graphic Image Flooring, LLC.
