Micro-landscape on manhole covers in Providence Tiny landscape, unlimited imagination
A proposal for temporary art in Providence
Since people who live in city nowadays rarely have time to enjoy the beauty of nature, by mimicking the natural scene, we brought the poetic natural landscape to the city. Making the micro-landscape on manhole covers, the place always ignored by drivers and pedestrians, we encourage city dwellers to enjoy the natural landscape and inspire their imagination, meanwhile actually participate in the changing process.
We used different materials, such as sand, small pebbles, magnetic powders and carbon dioxide ice and owers to create micro-landscape on manhole cover on the street. By using different materials, we examined the life length of t micro-landscape we made due to different surroundings. We trace the changes while time goes by.
