2013 Année Le Nôtre : land art au Parc Balbi III

You had seen the green 'mecanic fields' here. This is another of the land art exhibits in parc Balbi for Le Nôtre year. This is 'the passage' by Laurent Weiss. Oh, and about yesterday's post and privacy issues: LondonLulu found a fab link (thanks!) that explains quite a lot about why I am reluctant to post photos of people. Those of you who are interested can go to the NY Times 'lens' blog post by clicking here.

Vous aviez vu les "champs magnétiques" verts ici. Voici une autre des structures de land art installées au parc Balbi pour l'année Le Nôtre. Il s'agit du "passage" de Laurent Weiss.

I like the teepee look to this. I definitely would have to walk through it.

I too avoid people pictures. The Lens article was interesting and reaffirmed my desire to leave people out of my photography. It's a shame really.

This is graceful garden architecture. Echos of gothic arches.

I love that amazing structure and the capture (Laurent Weiss has other amazing works too)! Thanks for the kind mention and so glad you found the article interesting (it really explained a lot of things clearly:).

Love the arch effect and the green!

Diane AZ said...

I would enjoy walking through that passage! I like the blooming tree in the background.

Randy said...

Interesting.

The "teepee" structure contrasts pretty nicely with the green strips.

Interesting article. France is in a very different space than other countries, especially the USA.

Thanks for passing along that link. It was fascinating. I don't have any trouble in the US if I am polite and ask permission when at close range. I've had no sense of paranoia but then I don't shoot police at work. Having said that, it's a little tougher in New York than here in St. Louis.

Le principe du teepee indien devient de l'art.. Geronimo doit se retourner dans sa tombe!

Non, juste du mal à suivre , alors mise en retraitun moment.

@ Jack: the article focuses on France but Google can't street view in Germany without blurring faces and people can oppose their home being 'street viewed'...

Very sc-fi looking!

Olivier said...

sympa ce petit tunnel ecologique , et puis tout ce vert ;)

JM said...

So simple and yet so clever. Love it!

Une construction bien elegante...
Le lien sur le droit de photographier est bien interessant et rejoint un tas d'autres articles sur un sujet dont les regles varient selon les pays. Conclusion: faire attention et etre pret a toute eventualite.

Tanya Breese said...

that is pretty incredible! and i'm going to have to come back and check that link...sounds interesting!

Weird. Appears to be done by someone who liked Native American structures but wasn't quite sure how to design one! Just kidding!!

Re privacy: I had no idea the laws were so strict in France. I figure if you're out in public, you're fair game. And I must say I never once encountered a problem in Paris and I took hundreds of photos - many of which included people. In fact, many, when they saw what I was doing, posed for me.

This is an interesting 'sculpture', it fits in with this exhibit and has some cool lines.

PerthDailyPhoto said...

We had one very similar to this in Sculptures by the Sea one year Ciel, enjoyed it then and even more in Versailles :) Will pop over and read that article now merci beaucoup!

With a few more poles the passage would be a nice cage for its artist...

James said...

Cool shot! It sort of reminds me of the yellow brick road in the land of OZ.

The linked article is perfectly timed for today's Weekend Reflection photo. :-)

Mais Geronimo n'a probablement jamais connu de tipis...

Dina said...

Cool. I like.

Tammie Lee said...

i love these artful sticks
they remind me of tipis

Yes, the opinions upon privacy is very much jurisdiction based.
