Not Red But Green.

Wednesday, December 10, 2014

This stunning art piece, called Not Red But Green, was designed by Per Kristian Nygård and can be found in a gallery in Oslo called Noplace. It's made from real grass and dirt, with glowing green crests that crawl right up to the windows. Right away, it reminded me of Maya Lin's manmade rolling hills — which were designed to resemble ocean waves — at Storm King Art Center upstate. One of my favorite memories this year involved ambling up and down it, trying not to fall.


Visit Per Kristian Nygård's website, here (and have a wonderful Wednesday!).

Love this installation, but also love Maya Lin's - thanks for the introduction, I had not heard of her before.

Anon, my pleasure. Her work is stunning.

There is always something that gets me thinking when you bring the nature indoors, maybe it's not to take it for granted or for us to gain a new appreciation for nature once it's place in a different context :)
