this is a really interesting sculpture by a spanish architectural firm called citylaboratory. when full of water, it’s absolutely entrancing to look at
"rotunda is an elemental garden, based on an atmospheric and poetic perception of materials, light, plants and the passing of time. it is a reflection on the fundamental themes of the art of the garden. conceived as a device capturing the beauty of nature, the intention is to transform the surrounding landscape into the garden itself by capturing what is outside its boundaries. the garden is to be filled with water at the beginning of its life and to be left to evolve over time, becoming a climate register device. It will be sensible to changing light conditions, fluctuations in temperature and humidity, rainfall and evaporation."
This was at Jardins de Métis yes? I’ve attended in 2013 and there were so many intriguing works.
Takashi Kuribayashi - Underground Sound of Rain, 2013
Takashi Kuribayashi sewed thousands of leaves he picked up from the garden, and hung them from the ceilings. The work is titled Underground Sound of Rain. The intertwining leaves form a draping overlay that reminds us of a green-brown colour fabric with undulating contours – visually, this creates a dynamic effect. It is akin to leaves that fell onto the surfaces of a hill, only to be pulled back simultaneously by a strong magnetic force from the sky, the leaves draping as they float across the exhibition space. The range of nylon fabrics that bind the leaves presents themselves as beaming white vertical lines that drop from the ceilings of the gallery walls.
Louis Sicard, Emil Yusta and Thorsten Fischer - Voile de la mariée, 2014
Artist Louis Sicard, architect Emil Yusta and carpenter Thorsten Fischer have created an installation which channels water from a nearby waterfall, which then carries the water over 40 yards through the forests of The Auvergne Volcanoes Regional Park in France. Perforated holes in the structure allow the water to shower down into the stream bed and on visitors heads.
