COOL HUNTING

Part of the Earth Art Exhibit at The Royal Botanical Gardens in Canada, the work of German artist Nils-Udo caught CH's eye. His installation consists of a grass-based ramp (or is it a bridge?) leading into the verdant forest of the Ontario backwood. It's a clever example of the intersection of nature and a constructed reality, revealing some of our conceptions of both. The sod pathway to nowhere makes us think for a minute, which is what we like about it. (See install shots below.)

Nils-Udo's work is only one of ten different international and local artists at the Earth Art Exhibit. We think they're all awesome and if you're an Andy Goldsworthy fan at all, you should definitely check out the rest of the exhibit.
