I didn't know what it was as I approached it on the downtown Salt Lake City street but have since learned: a public art installation called SWAY'D created by Daniel Lyman and meant to be reminiscent of a field of grass or trees in the wind. It is also, of course, open to the interpretation of each person who enters the landscape and may make you play, wander, sit and stare, or just think. I sat down on the rocks and thought of the illustration from a children's book I read long ago, of baby Moses floating down the river in a basket. Which I guess makes Neil (below) the Pharaoh's daughter.
