Spiral Sunday this week features a couple of photographs I’ve been sent recently. The first is from one of my PhD students, Alex Laws, taken on a trip to Cornwall earlier this year. The artist is James Eddy, not a name I was familiar with, but definitely worth checking out, especially as he is a land artist too.
Which leads us to the second picture, sent to me by a Polish colleague, Marcin Zych, of a spiral-shaped piece of land art he found near Olomouc, in the Czech Republic. It reminds me (on a smaller scale) of Robert Smithson’s amazing sculpture Spiral Jetty (of which I was unaware until it was kindly introduced to me by Carrie McLaughlin of the Texas Pollinator Powwow).
Many thanks to Alex and Marcin, and to Carrie too.
