PROJECT TYPE: Land Art Installation, Environmental Site Art
LOCATION: Morrison Springs, Ponce De Leon, Florida
PROJECT DESCRIPTION: A temporary installation made out of pink string, Swamp Lines creates a datum line for looking into the buttressed Cypress and Tupelo tree trunks beyond. The string was temporarily wrapped around three Nyssa aquatica (Water Tupelo) trees along the swamp margin of a natural aquifer spring. Looking through the string datum reveals the marked water levels on the trunks of the spring margin trees where they are exposed to varying levels of water inundation.
