A new road through a traditional English rural landscape presents a number of problems which can be solved responsibly. Approaching this from an artist's point of view will give unexpected results.
Weymouth Relief Road - art in the road environment
A roundabout in Heemskerk, Holland
When the roundabout is approached from one of the directions on this road, it projects itself as an ellipse - because the two halves of the circle from which the sculpture is constructed have been opened at its base. The sculpture is constructed from two 180 degree circle segments. Since each segment is in one plane, the sculpture projects itself as a turned over letter 'V' when it is approached from one of the roads. And in between these two approaches the sculpture spirals as you drive around the roundabout (a few time extra).
