Towering thirty feet high in the Nevada desert, Ugo Rondinone’s massive land art installation, Seven Magic Mountains, is a stunning, fluorescent meditation on the relationship between humans and their environment. More than two hundred backers rallied behind this monumental work — one of the largest land art installations of the past forty years.

Urnatur, Sweden. “The wood hermitage is a place for relaxation and reflection. Here in the forest you can enjoy the luxury of simplicity, living in unique hand-crafted cottages, or in a tree house, without electricity. Sit down by the fireplace and savour the moment. The soft light of the kerosene lamp and the scent of boiled coffee readily guide you to intimate conversations, far from everyday pressures.”

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.
