"...a dramatic cone which rises 18ft into the air".

“…a dramatic cone which rises 18ft into the air”.

To quote from the At-Bristol website:

This striking piece, sponsored by the Institute of Physics, commemorates the work of Paul Dirac, the Nobel Prize winning scientist/mathematician who was born in Bristol.

Paul Dirac is most famous for his contribution to the Quantum theory and his discovery of anti-matter“.

I don’t know anything about quantum theory or anti-matter, but I do like a dramatic cone. The building behind the sculpture is At-Bristol, which has “hundreds of hands-on exhibits to explore, live shows and a Planetarium“.  Reflected in the glass you can see the traffic on Anchor Road, Bristol Cathedral Choir School and the twin bell towers of Bristol Cathedral.
