sculpture in nature

Copper Beech Circle

Installation and sculpture in nature by land artist Richard Shilling . Richard proved art is absolutely free.

Richard Shilling makes sculptures from natural materials he gathers near to where each sculpture is made. Every sculpture is photographed in natural light, using normal camera equipment and without any photoshop trickery. Each photo accurately depicts how each sculpture appeared, at its most vibrant moment, before the elements reclaim the materials back to nature. Through his ongoing relationship with nature he explores themes to do with time, ecology and the constant flux of the seasons and expresses these ideas through his unique land art images.You can see much more of his work and read all about what he gets up to on the photo sharing siteFlickr and on his blog with updates every week and many new sculptures.

when squid listens to cypress hill

This is What Happens When a Squid Listens to Cypress Hill nature

Some scientist did an experiment on a squid which naturally do not possess ears to listen to cypress hill .Watch video to see how do they respond .

During experiments on the axons of the Woods Hole squid (loligo pealei), we tested our cockroach leg stimulus protocol on the squid’s chromatophores. The results were both interesting and beautiful. The video is a view through an 8x microscope zoomed in on the dorsal side of the caudal fin of the squid. We used a suction electrode to stimulate the fin nerve. Chromatophores are pigmeted cells that come in 3 colors: Brown, Red, and Yellow. Each chromatophore is lined with up to 16 muscles that contract to reveal their color.

A Sign in Space

For her installation titled “A Sign in Space”, artist Gunilla Klingberg created a graphic star-pattern printed as a relief on the sand of Spain’s Laga beach using a mechanical device, a manufactured steel-cylinder, with the graphic pattern as a matrix relief made of truck tires. The cylinder is connected to the beach cleaner tractor which drives from side to side of the beach in the morning, creating the pattern covering the whole beach area. Following the lunar and tidal calendar, the pattern is remade again and again at all possible days at low tide.
