Eye of the Storm – Land Art Project

Another offering in the woods. I found some nice green grapevine. Green vine is easy to weave, leaves and all. When I find a pile of grapevine I interpret it as a free art supply, just waiting for a challenge.

I featured an old clock, minus the mechanical parts, in this weaving. It has metal sails.

“Eye of the Storm”

Lately there have been lots of hurricanes in the Caribbean. So the phrase ‘eye of the storm’ has been particularly poignant.

It started to rain half way through the process, which is actually fine. Because it’s easier to weave the vine when it is supple. But sucks on the hands.

I chose a place in our woods which has two paths converging, sort of at a fork in the road.

Grapevine walls are notoriously difficult to photograph. But here is an attempt from a distance as you approach it from my path.
