2013 Site_Specific International Land Art Biennale
Plettenberg Bay, South Africa,
10-17 August.

This video represents some of the work I did during the week. Inspired and fascinated by the splatter patterns of water on sand, the idea started to form around the connection and borders between land and sea. This was expressed by using sand, mud and water.

“Flow. Drift. Splatter
Flowing with clarity and energized focus.
Creating, Working
Being in the moment.

Drifting along, swept away by emotions.
Feelings, thoughts that ebb and flow like the tides.
While oil seep into the cracks of our survival.
Spluttering, Crashing against rock,
hitting your head against a wall to leave your mark.

Flow, Focus, Have Faith
that you are in the right place at the right time.
That everything can be healed, washed away
By water. Or by Time.”

Janet Botes, 2013
