Landscape Abbreviated is a art installation by the young artist Nova Jiang for Wave Hill, the public garden & cultural center located in the Bronx. She created a little kinetic maze, with a floating garden, control by machines. His goal was to create a experience where a simple intervention could create an unpredictable paths.
I especially love this «modern» adaptation of a maze with a software that randomize the path so accordingly change your way of thinking to find an exit. It’s a beautiful metaphor of the serendipity, have exterior effect that forcing you to think differently.
This installation is quite little, but imagine a street, even a city where the nature drives your behavior and not this opposite like today.
