Dam Graffiti!

From the LA Times: “An anonymous band of artists painted a giant pair of scissors and a dotted line on the face of 200-foot Matilija Dam near Ojai. For years, an alliance of environmentalists, fishermen, surfers and officials from every level of government has called for demolishing the obsolete structure, which was built in 1947. (Mel Melcon, Los Angeles Times /September 19, 2011)”

Forest Pitch

Craig Coulthard’s Forest Pitch project for London 2012 Cultural Olympiad is reminiscent in a way of Field of Dreams. The art project will feature a full size soccer field hidden within a commercial forest, utilizing felled trees to “create goalposts, a shelter and other infrastructure on site.” Once the two scheduled matches are finished, “the site will be left to grow back naturally, with some native species replanted to encourage a more diverse environment. The shelter will remain as a simple documentation space and observation point, to witness the gradual reclamation of the pitch by the natural world.”

Evol’s Ground Installation at MSDOCKVILLE Festival in Germany

Upon arriving at his spot for the piece, Evol found “an endless meadow.”  So instead of building up in the environment, he went down.

“I decided to cut open the idyll, and pretend there is no endless meadow, but only rooftop-gardens of the disgust underneath …”

The 9×9 meter, 1.5m deep piece is beautifully executed.
