Not So Handy Andy.

Not So Handy Andy has an interesting blog website. This piece is an installation by Uysal Mehmet Ali at the Land art exhibition in Chaudfontaine, Belgium

It seems to be an out of place posting in a blog devoted to funny red-neck quick fixes. The clothes peg appears to be a more profound statement. It leaves you thinking about things like scale and the relationship between man's use of trees and the resources of the earth. It makes me think about how hills and mountains are really formed. And about the fact that we've hung the planet up to dry.

It also reminds me of an image below sent to me last year.



I think my hands are getting eager to do something in stone along a similar (clothes) line.
