Clearing IV by Antony Gormley; is also an example of, what to me, is a 3D drawing that the viewer can move through, a drawing you can enter…that the viewer sees differently as they move through the space.
I think it’d be brilliant if the lines were made from living plants, the template borne from my drawing but where it ends up is dependent on the growth of the plant. One of my favourite examples of human/plant collaboration is that of the living bridges in Northern India, in my mind this is an example of the ultimate in architecture. They can be centuries old and by their nature are ever changing, it’d be great to make a piece of work, a living installation left to its own devices; maybe fill a gap between buildings? a space an audience can move through and be in, a literal take on an urban jungle….initially the space would be plotted by the drawings framework but with time the vines would entwine with each other and the audience would have to make new pathways through the space, new clearings may appear.
The drawing borne through the mind map could be the template for any initial experiments into this project, I like the idea that more more projects are interlinked, a cohesive body of work growing and evolving.
