A Buried City
Recently EVOL (the German artist who turns power boxes you see on the side of the road into apartment blocks, in effect creating miniature cities) was asked to create an installation in a place that’s almost the opposite of his normal environment… an open field. Instead of building something on the land, he decided to create in the earth itself.
He ended up creating an intersecting X shape that allowed him to create his own city in the land that viewers can walk amongst. The trenches are about 4 or 5 feet deep, and in total took him about 8 days to complete.
