Permanent Garden

by Gabriel Orozco

The garden as a sculpture, the sculpture as a garden, or simply a garden. Nevertheless, as a garden, it continues to convoke moments for community life from the spatial organization of different elements present in the landscape.

Landface

by Anastasia Savinova

In “Landface” Series, Anastasia Savinova explores a different relationship between body and landscape. The dominance of vision is overlapped by all other senses and the body becomes the central place of this experience of being in the landscape, of being landscape.

Another Green World

by Ellie Davies

Using shapes inspired by insect eggs, shells, oceanic diatoms, sea anemones and corals, each ‘form’ is made from materials drawn from the surrounding area — like the cadis fly lava that builds an armoured case to protect and house itself — these forms are disguised or distinguished using seaweeds, river weed, moss, mares tail, bracken, heather, lichen, chalk dust and leaf litter.

Fragile Table

by Hidemi Nishida

A time for a deep communication with the landscape, the environment, and the world. It elevates your gaze a little higher than normal, and this small difference gives you a fresh perspective.

Saxhóll Staircase

by Landslag ehf.

Maximizing travelers’ time at the destination is tantamount to building a minimally invasive tourism culture that recognizes the vulnerability of the landscape and respects the boundaries created to protect it. By installing a staircase, which clearly illustrates to visitors that the volcano is an accessible site, the project deters tourism to other vulnerable, but unmarked, areas in the National Park and in Iceland more broadly. The staircase incubates respectful tourism behaviors while maximizing visitors’ enjoyment.

Smoke and Mirrors Heathland

by Ellie Davies

(…) a more personal response to the landscape, an experience embedded in memory, history, storytelling, folk law and magic, to engage the viewer in a dialogue with the image and in a sense of the familiar, drawing on an awareness of how our perceptions of the natural world are shaped.

Hvidovre Beach park

by VEGA landskab and Karin Lorentzen

At the waterside of Hvidovre, a small artificial beach has been upgraded to a new improved beach park, designed by VEGA landskab and sculptor Karin Lorentzen.
(…) The new project consists of an expansion of the beach, a new layout of the path system moving along the meadow, and a concrete edge between the beach and the meadow.

Restoration

by Ilkka Halso

Scaffoldings are covering objects of nature instead of houses and man-made objects. Trees, boulders, rock faces and fields are under repair.

Empire

by Lori Nix and Kathleen Gerber

Long ago man entered the landscape and forced nature to his will. Once grand, and emblematic of strength and prosperity, they now appear abused and in decay, and it is uncertain how they will continue to (de)evolve.

Omega

by Regan Rosburg

How does one have a funeral for habitat loss, let alone the death of our most treasured ideals and ethics? When we cannot mourn something (via ceremony, symbol, or symbolic act) we enter a state of melancholia. When that loss is related to the Earth, it is considered environmental melancholia.

Cultiver la Mémoire

by 100Landschaftsarchitektur [Thilo Folkerts]

(…) any garden is about struggle, it is a fight about creating and achieving a certain order and then maintaining it – quite often at odds against nature.

Touchstones

by Monika Gora [GORA art&landscape ab]

By walking in the area, I transform the landscape into a physical experience. I make myself familiar with it, touch it and let it touch me. I turn myself into the touchstone. I find places near the beaten tack, to rest and experience myself in the landscape that surrounds me.

Ornitographies

by Xavi Bou

Ornitographies is a balance between art and science; a nature-based dissemination project and a visual poetry exercise but above all, an invitation to perceive the world with the same curious and innocent look of the child we once were.

Earth Null School

Suggestion: the link to the Earth Nullschool, a global and configurable mapping of wind patterns, ocean currents and different levels of air pollution, which make visible the performing Earth system and the impacts of its modifications.

Traveling Landscapes

by Kathleen Vance

These works bring nature back into ones every day life and the hurried pace of each person’s travels can be slowed to a moment of respite for contemplation and reflection.

What’s next? We will be searching and publishing works and projects regularly. We will be also quarterly publishing written works and interviews.
