Response to: Artwork

Original Post: Artwork

It's hard for me to speak about art, and I try not to pretend to know what I'm talking about, but I can try and relate it to architecture.

What I think about when I see (photos of) Lily's land sculptures is how diagrammatic they are - like abstract scientific diagrams of a magnetic field - but then obviously made from organic (Murray piece above) or domestic (as in the huge records installation) components. So the components are familiar, but not the arrangement. I love it how those sunburnt campers up on the Ovens river thought your underwater rock cairn was 'extra-terrestrial'.
