Unbelievable Land Art - Puts Corn Mazes to Shame
TOPICS | Video Posted Saturday, October 26, 2013 (449 views)

The newest piece of land art WISH, spanning 11 acres, the artwork by Cuban-American artist Jorge Rodriguez-Gerada, is made up from 30,000 pegs, 2,000 tons of soil and 2,000 tons of sand. The land art shows the face of an anonymous 6-year-old Belfast girl. Rodriguez-Gerada said the land art, which was put together with the help of an army of local volunteer, is the largest he has ever produced.

Creating “WISH” in Belfast, Ireland, took about 30,000 wooden stakes, 2,000 tons of soil and 2,000 tons of sand, according to a press release from the Ulster Bank Belfast International Festival. Believe it or not though, Rodriguez-Gerada built it in just four weeks, but he wasn’t alone. The city of Belfast and some of its residents assisted with the artwork as well.

“Working at very large scales becomes a personal challenge but it also allows me to bring attention to important social issues, the size of the piece is intrinsic to the value of its message,” he said. “Creativity is always applied in order to define an intervention made only with local materials, with no environmental impact, that work in harmony with the location.”

This video of “WISH” shows detailed close-ups of the artwork as well as the larger picture: Check out the video below and Jorge Rodriguez Website here.
