Ledro Land Art 2013​ | Sphere
Ledro (TN) - selected
The installation consists in al large spherical solid positioned in the centre of a nature trail. In an environment where the main acting force is gravity, a sphere is clearly a product of the human activity. The structure is made of a wooden core, metal mesh to model the main surface and jute sacks to produce the irregular bumps, finally two layers of turf, necessary to support future growth. The organic surface layer negates the precision of the sphere recalling the irregularity present in nature and producing a tactile experience. The installation interrupts an already existent trail: with the passing of time, new trails will be traced around its perimeter by visitors. This will allow a circular experience of the sphere's surface and the observation of what will find home on top of it.
