Linear Sculpture - Sculpture in Lines

A line drawn in the grass defines the width of the serpent mound, as projected by two diverging lines within which the meander is contained.

Curb forms a diagonal line in my first land art project.
Curbstones installed in my Walburg land art project - the level on the right higher than on the left, where the street used to be.

In my environmental projects, around 1970, I used parts of our daily environment and combined them in unusual ways. Here a curb without a street - nor is there a sidewalk. This line lies perpendicular to the axis of the high tension wires, connecting their pylons of which one was on this location when I started this project -  and I incorporated it into the total design as an industrial element which has now become an industrial monument. The wires went underground and this Pylon is the only memory which remains.
