The Simple Things - - ESCAPE | OUTING -

Many of the places men­tioned here fea­ture land art, a move­ment that de­vel­oped in the 1960s and 1970s and which in­volves us­ing the land it­self to make art. Fa­mous land artists in­clude Andy Goldswor­thy, Chris Drury and Richard Long, who mem­o­rably turned a walk into sculp­ture, sim­ply by striding back and forth in a grassy field. And that is the joy of it – if you’ve ever added a stone to a cairn on a walk, ar­ranged some peb­bles on a beach, made a den in the woods, floated some flower heads on a pond or even sim­ply mown the lawn, then you too have cre­ated land art. And if you can do all that with­out re­ally think­ing about it, just think what you could do if you tried.
