Dirksland | my site specific sculptures revisited

The road, near Sheerness, traversed the orchard at a very sharp angle to north-south rows of trees. That gave a very interesting effect: I could see that the rows of trees were very close to each other - as close as they are in an orchard. But the acute angle in which the road traversed the orchard, together with the proximity of the trees to the road, gave a conflicting experience: you know that when you drive through an orchard at fifty miles an hour, the rows of trees should follow each other in rapid succession. But the sharp angle multiplies the actual distance between the rows - and your expectation conflicts with the actual experience. That is why I called this project time lapse.
