Land Art Research

While preparing and settling into the research for the Land Art assignment, I am exploring things that I think might also qualify as Land Art.

This wonderful piece created by volunteers at a National Trust house is a marvel of measurement.

 

Staying with garden areas, is topiary a form of Land Art? It uses natural elements of the landscape although the trees may have been placed rather than self seeded.

When topiary is used to create a maze it becomes even more interesting.

People who design and create gardens with a specific intention to create beauty are certainly creating an art form, whether it is formal or not. Some of the formal British and Japanese gardens  are extraordinary in their precision, while typical cottage gardens are often a mass of vibrant colour.
