Driftwood cairn by Richard Gingras




If you liked that, you might be interested in the Andy Goldsworthy documentary, “Rivers and Tides”: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rivers_and_Tides

It was on Netflix as of a year or so ago and really wonderful to watch.


Mr. Gingras’s pieces reminded me of some works by a really interesting sculptor in Alberta, Peter von Tiesenhausen, notably his ‘The Watchers’.


That was gorgeous, and the music and timing really make the piece work.

A decade or so ago, a friend of mine salvaged a bunch of discarded Christmas trees, waited until they dried out, took them down to the beach, and made a giant menorah. It didn’t last seven nights :-), or even as long as Gingras’s cairn burn.
