Thread: Land Art

  1. #1

    Land Art

    A Land Art installation by artist V. Skip Willits of Camanche Ia and artist Mike Dodd, Southern France.

    The first one is a mash up of two photos, commonly referred to as a double exposure.

    The last has a ring of 53 clam shells that have holes drilled in them. When I was little, 50 years ago now, they were common along the shore of the Mississippi as remnants of the button industry that thrived before plastic. Now they show up on ocassion when a street is being repaired in the fill from 100 years ago.

    Excellent services, just have been a long trip following that fence... & not a corn field to be seen (didn't think that was possible in Iowa).
    It is by will alone I set my mind in motion.

    Not impossible, just not that easy. Corn fields and the Mississippi are just about everywhere I go but the Mississippi has less dust this time of year so I spend more time there.

    A very well seen and captured series Marv - flawless technique and strong composition. Certainly of the standard we have come to expect from you!

    Regards,

    What an extraordinary set of images.

    Some of them are almost serpent-like.

    Lovely work.

    (I don't know if I am doing something wrong or not but I only seem to be able to view these at small sizes. Even when I click onto them they enlarge only slightly. Is there some way around that?)

    If a single photograph is a phrase, then a body of work is the full story.
