ABOUT

With this work I concentrated on synthesis at transcendental level.

When I arrived to workshop I decided to dispose of any primary attitude of where and what kind of work I would like to do. And so I went to search for a place which would demonstrate by it self that is right for work. Eventually I found a strange clearing in a forest.

Concept was simple- to create a small public place in the forest, in which you could watch dynamic swell of soil waves and play of shadow and light, followed by the sound of forest rustle, which embellishes the experience. That is were synthesis of soil, as building material, in connection with water, as an ideological symbol, shows up. In this way I am trying to create meditation feeling.

A person can walk into the work piece and sit on a stone and loose him self for a while in affection of views. The place is also very thankful for its surprise feeling when you approaching the site. Also I concentrated on how to make features of this clearing ostensive, not just to infuse creation into surroundings.

Work was created during “Art Synthesis” project, in 3 days period, using rake, spade and axe.
Approximate dimensions 15x3 meters.
