From afar, the land art of German artist Cornelia Konrads demands a double-take, as materials native to the surrounding landscape appear to defy gravity and levitate, frozen in a snapshot moment. Upon closer inspection, the fine wire and fishing line she employs come into focus. Pictured above is Moment of Decision, an installation adjacent to a playground in Sweden. Pictured below (in order) are The Gate in France, Passage in Germany, Tree Memorial in Connecticut, as well as a detail shot of Tree Memorial.

There are many more of her awe-inspiring site-specific pieces on her website, along with close-up detail shots and some in-progress shots.

I’m a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.

I was an editor for the first 40 volumes of MAKE. The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. Covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made.
