Jim Denevan s'est mis en tête de créer de gigantesques dessins avec pour toile des étendues de sable bordées de mer : des plages. Seul souci et on ne doute pas une seconde qu'ils étaient au courant, la mer, ça monte, et le vent, ça souffle. Leurs oeuvres quoique éphémères valent en tout cas le détour.

    Beautiful documentation from @saamgabbay of my recent work in Arcosanti, Arizona in association w @form The composition involved walking almost 100 miles incising lines the ground by hand in circles straight lines triangles curves and spirals, all freehand, over a few weeks time.10,000 solar lanterns emphasize the lotus pattern. The artwork is planted (the darker inward pointing triangles)with Chia and 5 kinda of heritage grains. Profound thanks ??????? to key art workers @christa_muse @brightondenevan @and_anne @samsquamch_ @mmitchell33 @dualityduels @nocoastsk8boards @daveblum1 @jei.christo big thanks @ztetreau of FORM for the opportunity and space to create place/geometry.
