The Mountains

Posted by
Mooie (Vancouver, Canada) on 6 July 2013 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

Those squiggly things are actually a work of art called "the mountains" which totally makes sense now. Obviously. Unless you are facing the other direction which has a clear view of actual mountains. You can see how two co-workers could end up having an Abbot and Costello-like conversation if one only sees "squiggly things" and the other only sees "the mountains".

Did you trim around the mountains?
Huh?
In the middle of the park
The squiggly things?
No, the mountains
I trimmed around the squiggly things
Huh?
The squiggly things in the middle of the park
You trimmed around the mountains
Huh?

Rock on, Turf Crew, rock on.

I am not sure how or when, but posting on this blog has become my most accurate platform for creative expression. It's so inspiring to browse through other blogs and every comment is very appreciated!

I'm no mountaineer but I sure like this work . . you have me wondering if, in the other direction, the shapes actually follow the distant ridges !

@Ronnie 2¢: No, it's not that sophisticated, but it is quite cool once you know they are mountains!

I think they better trim again; looks a little long. Cool mountains.

I love that! I think the squiggly things are actually cool and a work of art, I kind of see both the mountains and the squiggles :-) the intensity in the blue and green and space are great. haha I like your commentary too.

@Abena: They are pretty cool... at first all I saw were squigglies (we used to try and climb them when we were.. umm young), but now all I see are mountains! Thanks for the comment!
