In 1969, American artist Michael Heizer drove a motorcycle in circles in Jean Dry Lake, Nevada. The tire tracks created a pattern of circular lines, creating an ephemeral land-art piece. A set of photographs describes the process from a close point of view: the camera was strapped to a ladder…

In the middle of a small lake in Belgium, a rectangular piece of the water’s surface is mysteriously glowing. This elusive light is the design of Belgian artist duo Karel Burssens and Jeroen Verrecht, aka “88888”, whose works transform specific sites into art. Their otherworldly light installation, “Untitled”, was created for the Horst Art and Music Festival, located on one of the two moats that surround the medieval Horst Castle.

The work of Javier Riera born in Avilés, Asturias, Spain, is based in geometric shaped light projections, striked directly onto vegetation and landscape. He uses photography as a means for registration and spreading of the happening, without digital manipulation whatsoever. Thus, it’s centered in an experience of real intervention onto “the space and time of the landscape”, something that approximates him to the LandArt proposals.
