     Cardiff Bay Arts Trust was established in 1990 as part of a policy on public art set out by Cardiff Bay Development Corporation. Over the first decade CBAT has worked with public institutions, private corporations and with the local community to enrich the experience for those who visit, live and work in the area. Following the wind up of CBDC, Cardiff Bay Arts Trust became CBAT The Arts & Regeneration Agency and continues to operate UK wide and internationally.
     Information from CBAT: 'Providing a viewing point across the Bristol Channel from Penarth Haven, the work forms a physical connection between language and landscape. Symbolic of the interconnectedness of people and the land, the piece explores our relationship with our environment and perceptions of ownership and cultural heritage.'
