This is taken from about a third of the way along the Nave, in line with the North Porch. The water feature in the foreground is Sibirica Minor II by William Pye. It was installed for Easter 2005 and was due to be removed after Pentecost 2006. "Locating a font near the entrance reminds us of our journey through life, of pilgrimage and discipleship. Although not designed as a font, Sibirica Minor II works well as such." says a nearby notice.
The blue stained glass window at the vanishing point of this photo is the Prisoners of Conscience window installed in 1980.

I understand that this art work was one of several that were installed temporarily as a kind of competition to find the best design for a new font. This design won and was then made slightly larger for the final version installed permanently in 2008, see SU1429 : The new font, Salisbury Cathedral .

(Unusually for a church interior, I was able to capture the whole of this in one exposure with only very small blown highlights)
