PROJECT TYPE: Land Art Installation, Environmental Site Art
LOCATION: Santa Rosa Island, Florida
PROJECT DESCRIPTION: A temporary land art installation that uses hand-dyed Sisal to mark the outlines of a dry dune pond. Dune Drawings lays down linework by repeatedly wrapping the natural fibers of hand-dyed sisal rope around the gradient of silt deposits in the sand. Marking the silt deposits shows the varying levels of water inundation as the dune lake fills with water and dries up over time.
