365 Day Ephemeral Art Project 2016

I’m challenging myself in 2016 to produce an ephemeral art piece each day.

So what is ephemeral art? It’s a piece of art made on a walk with no tools and only what I find and then leave behind for others to find (or not).

This came as a result of gazing around Instagram and coming upon the work of Leonie Barton who had done this in 2015. I was totally inspired.

I have loved land art, or temporary art installations, since encountering Andy Goldsworthy‘s work years ago. Goldsworthy

My kids and I have done “Goldsworthys” on beaches in numerous places. I have left behind many pieces of art over the years. But never one a day.Hecla - 30 IMG_4179 Hecla - 06 IMG_4167
