Sculpture and Time and Space

Taking a break from the Japanese panels to think about Space and Time.... in how do you make people aware of either or both in a garden?

 Going to the store, I turned the corner and encountered this magical space. 
Total party time.
Two blocks are covered in a shower pale pink confetti of cherry petals. The effect wasn't limited to the pavement, I was aware of the entire volume of space defined by the blooming trees. 
On either side, dull and boring pavement gives sharp contrast to this temporal phenomena of spring.

We think a garden is about plants. 
A garden is also about your awareness of time and space and perception.
I'm giving a workshop for the Hardy Plant Society on siting Sculpture and Art in the Garden later this spring.
