French artist Estelle Chrétien often works with the earth, producing land art installations that subtly weave a human experience into the natural landscape. In her work Ground Operation, Chrétien dug a small division into a lawn which she then stitched back together with electrical cable like thread into a wound. This 39-foot piece remains open at the end however, leaving us to question whether it is slowly healing or perhaps coming apart. (via This Isn’t Happiness, The Creators Project)
