Art on a giant scale

As an art form, sculpture often plays with scale. At Gibbs Farm Sculpture Park north-west of Auckland, twenty seven world-renowned artists were given carte blanche to create works on a giant scale.

For example, Richard Serra’s wall (above) is 252 metres long and six metres high, while Bernar Venet’s corten steel arcs stand at 27 metres in height. Dismemberment, Site 2 by Anish Kapoor is an extraordinary 85 metres long and lies nestled between two hills.

Seven day black & white photo challenge: day 7


I’m joining Sarah at Art Expedition in taking part in the Seven Day Black & White Photo Challenge.

The rules are:

Seven days. Seven black & white photos of your life. No people. No explanations. Challenge someone new everyday.

I don’t really do the “challenge someone” thing, but I invite anyone who’d like to join in to do so.
