to the artists, designers and craftspeople who think I call their work kitsch... this is NOT the case, it refers to my own work

Aeneas Wilder - Untitled#143

On a cloudy and very windy summer's day we visit the wooden dome sculpture.

Impressive in size, copying the circular architecture of nearby Grand Hotel Bellevue.

Once inside the half-open structure alters the sounds of the exterior.

The moment we decide to leave the sculpture we get a fabulous bonus. Untitled#143 wakes up with the sun breaking through the clouds. Magic happens. Other players join the scene, light and shadow bring life into the dome.

Just can't get enough of this (I'm a shadow addict)

Part of the artwork is that it will be destroyed by the artist "A new creation thus begins because of the destruction".

c'est vrai qu'il y a une ressemblance étonnante. Encore une preuve que dans l'art rien ne s'invente, mais que les artistes trouvent l'inspiration dans des choses déjà existentes.
Il manquait la fin sur votre lien, je l'ai ajouté ci-joint pour que les interessés curieux puissent le trouver.
Merci de la visite, et je vous souhaite encore beaucoup de plaisir landartesques.
