Land art has great future. There is more and more money being spent on public spaces, parks, squares, ambiguous-nobody-knows-whats - and progressively the idea of the exterior being "adaptable" to our imaginations is spreading and developing. That is not to say - forget the landscape! But realize what the landscape actually is, and try to work with it, play with it, improvize on it as you improvize on a melody. I find this often much more interesting than sculptures in public spaces, which oftentimes seem hopelessly lost, abandoned and reduced by all this... well, space. That's why I was very happy to read about the Dutch initiative of creating a permanent art-in-nature program.
