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

Le Vent des Forêts continued

Wind in the Forest

In July, six villages in the forest - in the Meuse region (France) - invite international artists to take a different look at nature and create works displayed along a 45- kilometre footpath through 5.000 hectares of forest.

I had to restrain myself from moving the poles, I used to love this game - Mikado - and was quite good at it.

just too tempting...

mmm... shall I?

in this scale it just does look dangerous...

using the same material, this sculpture feels totally different.

where the previous one seems to want interaction and looks inviting...

this one shouts hands off!

Still have a lot of unpublished pictures on the walk we did last year.

no, I did not touch them, they looked very heavy and I did not want to end up as a 'brochette'.
I haven't played the game in ages, I don't know if I'm still good at it.
