Further Natural Calligraphy / Carving The Land / The Story Of Land Art: Wanderings #40/52a - A Year In The Country
I've mentioned before about trees and the patterns they make as being a form of natural calligraphy. The images in The Coast Of England & Wales In Pictures by J.A. Steers from 1960 could be seen as a similar thing but rather they are patterns created by the land and tides themselves. What such things put me in mind of in part, are the artworks created in the landscape that can be seen in Troublemakers: The Story Of Land Art, which is a documentary on a number of people in the 1960s onwards who literally carved, excavated and poured often huge, landscape sized work out in the desert, along the coast etc.
