Today, we’re briefly revisiting a permanent artwork dating from 2013 and that is located on Shamijima. This is Tanya Preminger‘s Stratums :
For some reason, I do have a some spot for this work. Maybe because, it’s the best kind of land art… If you don’t pay close attention, you’d almost think that’s it’s almost natural. If you look closely, you realize that it’s more intricate that it seems at first.
Also, I always prefer art that you can interact with, as opposed to: “don’t move, don’t speak, don’t take pictures, don’t breathe, don’t do anything, just look… but not too long”.
Not mentioning the fact that it’s one of my daughter’s favorite artwork.
If you want to know more about this work of art, may I advise you to read the following two posts:

- Stratums being built.
