Forest Pitch

Craig Coulthard’s Forest Pitch project for London 2012 Cultural Olympiad is reminiscent in a way of Field of Dreams. The art project will feature a full size soccer field hidden within a commercial forest, utilizing felled trees to “create goalposts, a shelter and other infrastructure on site.” Once the two scheduled matches are finished, “the site will be left to grow back naturally, with some native species replanted to encourage a more diverse environment. The shelter will remain as a simple documentation space and observation point, to witness the gradual reclamation of the pitch by the natural world.”

Evol’s Ground Installation at MSDOCKVILLE Festival in Germany

Upon arriving at his spot for the piece, Evol found “an endless meadow.”  So instead of building up in the environment, he went down.

“I decided to cut open the idyll, and pretend there is no endless meadow, but only rooftop-gardens of the disgust underneath …”

The 9×9 meter, 1.5m deep piece is beautifully executed.

Moraine Lake Lodge

If you require things on vacation like fresh air, nature, and a room with a dominating view, the Moraine Lake Lodge is your place. Situated on the shore of Moraine Lake amongst the Valley of the Ten Peaks in Banff National Park, the lodge is only accessible between June 1st and October 1st. In this brief time, visitors are exposed to the Canadian Rockies in its fairest weather. Featuring activities including canoeing, hiking, and relaxing, the lodge is a destination for decompression. As an added bonus for those overdosing on technology, there are no phones, nor televisions at the lodge, just some all-too-necessary wifi.
