Art I like

Get your butt out of the way

One Day Poem Pavilion, a shadow-cast poem pavilion in which “the time-based nature of the poem–and the visitor’s time-based encounters with it–allow viewers to have different experiences either seeing a stanza of the poem or getting the whole poem.”

I’ve always thought the meandering of shadows across the landscape is poetic in itself—using it to make written poetry is a clever addition. There’s also shades of Cage’s Indeterminacy here, as the poetry consists of holes of nothingness cut out of nothing, shifting around as the world grinds around on its axis.

I’d particularly like to visit it on a cloudy day.

    A snowy day too would be cool.
