Can the Garden be Art?
John Ruskin said: “Art is the art of combining human hands, minds and thoughts. We British people want to describe themselves as gardeners. With the pride of typical islands, we engage in hostandhomely gardening techniques and landscape design because of Arabia. People, Japanese or Europeans have never deployed the Alhambra, Long An Temple or Versailles.
Cute Garden Craft Ideas
The ultimate glory of a traditional English garden is “cute!” You can treat your garden as a heavenly attack like any other artwork! Get enough criticism to let the traditional gardener smash with pumpkin.
But this traditional way of thinking is becoming increasingly difficult. Today, the Hampton Garden Flower Show from the Royal Horticultural Society is one of the concept garden design exhibitions (eccentric gardens, traditional English garden peaks) and, of course, attracts a large crowd.
Ecstasy, the 2008 champion, is a very black box designed by Tony Smith for the MDF The BiPolar Organization. Smith suffers from depression and uses this experience to create a garden with a colorful wall space. The only one is a wave of lettuce seedlings decorated with wavy fragments. You can hear the sound of a brigade 100 meters away.
Like conceptual art, many conceptual gardens, such as materials, are designed to evoke audience reactions as part of a work of art. However, they raised a philosophical question and thought it was a different British than a European. They did not like to spend young people in Nietzsche or Sartore cafes.
The idea of using the brain to analyze abstract concepts is enough for a typical English gardener to find and throw away good tea. The garden grows, changes and matures. It is affected by weather, pest damage, weed germination and wildlife predication. If the garden is an art form, is it still the same art form after 10 years? In the case of the black box Tony Smith’s ecstasy, the lettuce should be bolted again in a few weeks. The garden can be art, but can you call this artwork a garden?
