Description Apparently the remains of a structure that may, or may not, have existed at this exact location
Caption This seldom noticed "sculpture" might suggest that something exists below, or it may mark the location where something was above, or be the outline of a future structure, or - it may be the first installation of a series of projects that celebrate what can not be seen. There are lots of possibilities, which may be what this is about.
