... and see all the people

Static Gathering from Michael Ditchburn on Vimeo.

This is an installation that was done recently in the English countryside, in Thaxted, Essex. I love that it's calming if only because of the bucolic surroundings, yet could also be quite unsettling because the figures are realistic in some ways, yet stylized half out of existence. For me the ideal audience would seem to be hikers or cyclists who hadn't been told this was an art project.

This is interesting but perhaps just a little too static for my taste. My favorite artist of the outdoors is Andy Goldsworthy. If you haven't seen his work I'm sure it will come as a delightful surprise.

I've heard of Andy Goldsworthy before but hadn't seen a lot of his work. Some of it's quite impressive. In the case of the snow rings I'm impressed that he didn't give up on snow as a medium after fifth grade, the way most people unfortunately do.
