Jumped circle bench / process transformation
Rumen Dimitrov earth cylinder is Land Art personified. Dimitrov has created a cylinder of earth raised above the ground. Branches surrounds and defines this installation element. Next to this circle of earth and cut into the earth with the exact same measurements is a second circle. Seen together they give the impression that the earth has “jumped” from one place, the circle cut into the earth, to the second place “above the earth”. Working with these two levels the piece suggests simultaneously an opening to the earth and an projection to the sky. Father Sky and Mother Earth are brought together here, If seen from the sky, the installation could look like an infinity symbol, something that goes on forever… All done with a low-tech finesse, and simple resourcefulness, Dimitrov’s diagrammatic earth circles build a case for our place in the earth, and the symbolic power of a simple geometry such as that if the circle in an otherwise diverse and natural landscape.
Technical details of the work: The land art work conceptually include two circles, seen together they give the impression that the earth has “jumped” from one place, the circle cut into the earth, to the second place “above the earth”. Diameter of each of the circles is 500 cm and 50 cm high and 50 cm under the ground. So the last dimensions of the object is 5m x 10m x 1m
SIZE: 10m x 5m x 1m
