Revelatory Landscapes


Stadtlounge, Switzerland
Artist Pipilotti Rist in collaboration with Architect Carlos Martinez, 2005

This piece of public art intervenes in a pedestrianized area within the street environment revealing how pedestrians interact differently and perceive their environment in a unique and unaccustomed manner.




Rolling Bridge, London                                                                    Heatherwick Studio, 2004

This opening bridge reveals motion as it transforms from a conventional, straight bridge, into a circular sculpture: an object that usually stays static within the landscape.




Aurland Lookout, Norway

Todd Saunders and Tommie Wilhelmsen, 2002


As dramatic as the this bridge emerges into space, it creates an interaction between a man made structure and nature. And, in as sense it reveals a distinct horizon: a bridge inside in the open room of mother nature nature.

  1. 5 – yes by consolidating the ground into one color human behavior becomes visible.
    5 – materializing/revealing that which is ephemeral or in motion
    3 – nice try but “revealing a distinct horizon…” is vague; look more closely at the design of the bridge, which is essentially edge-less, not unlike the surrounding landscape.
