Making Mud, Moving Sticks
I tried erosion as a medium. I taped my hose to an outside table and then laid my camera and stand across the table. I built a 'little campfire' to see how it would react to the water. I see the little rock and stick pile as mankind collecting things and the hose being the force of nature- mankind holding up as much resistance as it can to being consumed by it.
I have an idea for my final project!
It is inspired by Smithson's spiral jetty being hidden for many years underneath of water and then reemerging. I may make a bowl with a hole that leads to a ramp. Below the ramp I want to make a simple art piece level with the ground. It will be easily covered up but when it rains the water should collect in the bowl, exit through the ramp and wash away the ground below, revealing the piece.
