land art.

Standard

 Every fall in Osijek, Croatia – Nikola Faller, academic sculptor and Osijek land artist, creates this magic.

Her drawings are made by raking leaves.

“every photographed object is merely the trace left behind by the disappearance of all the rest.

it is an almost perfect crime,

and almost total resolution of the world,

which merely leave the illusion of a particular object shining forth,

the image of which then becomes an impenetrable enigma.”

-jean baudrillard

  1. It’s so beautiful and unusual. I suspect it’s much like some sand art; it’s meant to be blown away in time. Its ephemeral nature is a large part of its appeal. It certainly gives another meaning to Robert Frost’s phrase, that “nothing gold can stay.”

  2. I’ve never seen anything like this–it’s stunning. I love the fallen leaves; I’m not a raker, although I do blow the leaves off of my porch area.It seems nature knows what to do with itself so it’s best I not interfere too much. This is inspiring!
