Who says trig is boring?

The recently completed renovation of Sennott Park in Cambridge, Massachusetts includes a beautiful new fence that features a sine wave.

It’s hard to tell from the city’s designs on the Cambridge Community Development website whether the fence was intended to be a true sine wave or not, so I took some photos and overlaid a sine curve so you can be the judge:

Another example of sine functions in outdoor art might be “Wave,” by Santiago Calatrava, at Southern Methodist University’s Meadows School of the Arts. I haven’t checked if that is a true sine wave so if you do, please let me know!
