Overview

The goal of this work was to compliment the rolling landscape and make a play on the phrase Birds Eye View through the formation of passageways/tunnels.

Powered-coated Aluminum
4′ High, varied x 13′ Length x 3″ wide squared tubes.
The path of the line is made up from 3 different sections and sit on top of the grass with no platform. Sections are screwed into concrete blocks which sit into the ground.

Goals

The goal of this work was to compliment the rolling landscape and make a play on the phrase Birds Eye View through the formation of passageways/tunnels. This presents different perspectives of translation of the paths and points of view to the viewer(s) depending on where they are in relation to the sculpture and also how they connect to the landscape. The sculpture, minimalistic white contour line presents this in a spirited manner and accents itself naturally in all seasons.

Process

The only collaboration was between myself and the client. I was the artist, designer and fabricator for this work.
