experiment in land art

on our recent holiday to devon i couldn’t resist trying my hand at a small homage to goldsworthy.

 

the large branch was already in place, i added the vertical pieces. my intention was to fill the entire space below the branch (leaving a gap for an animal trail which runs through the fence) but time and weather didn’t allow. but it was fun to make an intervention using the materials around me and my hope is that following visitors to the site (a private woodland) might fill in the gaps.

we have a week’s camping in pembrokeshire over the summer and i’ll be doing more experiments along these lines using materials from the beach and hopefully the abundant willow grown on the campsite. inspired by the work of roger ackling i’d also like to investigate drawing using sunlight.
