A Series of Impermanent Installation Works
With the intention to bridge connections between people and the environment, Imagine the Land Project works with mediums gathered from the natural materials in impermanent land based installation art works, working to foster a relationship between people, art & nature.
Imagine The Land Project is seeking to create art works aligned with eco-aesthetics. The out come is an art form that uses ancient techniques and materials in a contemporary context. The installations explore the languages and memory of the land and its unconscious messages. Every landscape has a unique song, qualities and textual forms.
By interacting directly with the sites and giving a new visual form we bring to the participants and viewers a space to integrate and reflect with the land and each other. By encouraging experiential group activity, the artwork becomes a metaphysically and tangible expression of positive human interaction with the land.
An innate process of the work is the deconstruction process.
The work reflects the ephemeral process of life , decay and transformation drawing a full circle.
A handful of materials is carried is from one installation to the next, weaving a circle of prayers. Imagine the Land has worked Internationally for the past three years, and is a collaboration of professional, creative artists and community involvement.
Projects have been completed in New Zealand, Columbia and Australia.
These works are an offering of gratitude to the land.
