A blog for the discussion of the Digital Arts.
I love Robert Smithson's work, I watched a video on him in high school and have been intrigued ever since. His free flowing forms are quite amazing.
The first one reminds me of Carburetor Cannon:)
i don't know if i could get as big as say stone henge, but i like the idea of making something you might need a small plane to look on. I'll have to consult my property's zoning laws and go from there!
just can't get that panhandle out of your blood... you know there are more stories from that place than meets the eye...;) u are missed... I wonder why the buffalo is still white everytime I drive past it...
I understand this is seen as art, and it is an interesting concept, but I don't find it really amazing by any means. I would like to know how it was made, by using large machines or did the artist actaully have a hand in making it? I have been trying to find information on it without much luck. So far It has prevented oil from being drilled in utahs great salt lake though - so i guess a benefit has come out of it.
I like the 2nd picture, the ground seems natural,The different textures used as the path centers away from the water is nice, as if there was little editing to the picture I want to draw like that
Julia B - it is art. It is real Cadillacs that are planted into the earth. Against the west Texas sky - it is a sight to behold and a place to visit. People get out there with spray paint cans and paint their form of art on the Cadillacs. It is an multi-millionaires way of showing the world that he can spend his money any way he chooses - and a statement that a Cadillac is a waste of money. You should see how the vehicles are decorated that he and his staff drive. There are other forms are his art in this area - some appealing and pleasing to the eye but some that are an eyesore.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stanley_Marsh_3http://www.flickr.com/photos/krausefoto/sets/72157612804579106/?page=2http://www.roadsideamerica.com/story/2220
Would to suggest that the first may take influence from the statues on Easter Island?I agree with Julia on how I view the second piece. It seems like something I would have made as a kid when I was bored, yet on a grander scale.
The first one reminds me a lot of Easter Island but made out of garbage
