Day 170: June 19
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Exploration
In the Southern area of Japan lays a remote landscape of artistry known as the Murou Art Forest in the countryside region of Nara in the village of Muro. It is the work of Israeli designer Dani Karavan who creates life-size monuments and tributes. He is known for creating monumental pieces and installing them in significant places of the world. The landscape of this forest park brings translates the natural world with artistic expression. In this park Karavan uses the idea of the spiral triumphantly with a Bamboo forest spiral that opens into a spiraled canal. The pattern continues into a simple labyrinth of a spiral that follows the stream in undulating curvature.
When one thing leads to another, we evolve and idea, concept or in the case of the Muro Art Forest, a design. The labyrinth here seems to bring a natural ending or start a natural beginning. Walking all three sections and returning gives us a full labyrinthic journey into art, expression and nature. Walking the spiral to and from can give us the simplicity that is nature in purest form. In the many complex designs and concepts available, the simple clean lines of opportunity can be impressive.
On this 170th day…
Explore in your walk of this day the natural way that one thing leads to another and how it comes to an expression for you.
