“La Línea Roja” is a photography project by artist Nicolas Rivals. To create each image, Rivals ventured into the Spanish countryside and set up temporary light installations, creating an intriguing series of long exposure, night time photos.
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.

Patrick “Dougherty’s works allude to nests, cocoons, hives, and lairs
built by animals, as well as the [artificial] forms of huts, haystacks,
and baskets, created by interweaving branches and twigs together. Many
of his works look ‘found’ rather than made” Trained originally as a
carpenter, Dougherty skipped backward from the finished material of
cut-and-dried wood straight to the source: saplings grown, bent and
built into magnificent works of natural and architectural sculpture. As
part of this process his designs plan in elements of unpredictability,
growth and eventual destruction – there is no attempt to maintain the
works beyond as certain point which are, eventually, left to return to
natural states slowly and beautifully. In many ways his works are most
stunning as they are observed over time – shifting from unorganized
through built and eventually into organic chaos. s
Andy Goldsworthy works with nature only and creates so-called land art. His works are vulnerable and transient. For his ephermal works, Goldsworthy often uses only his bare hands, teeth and found tools to prepare and arrange the materials.
