    many years ago, several farmers began producing art in their fields using creative cutting techniques, fertilizers, and plants.
    When asked why they would create such tremendous works of art that would not last beyond a season, the reply was, “what art do you think lasts forever?”

    he is clearly an alien. Complex shapes like this cannot be made by human beings–especially those from non-industrialized societies. Only aliens directing him from their space ships high above could create such things.

    you could easily take off the first 1:30 of the video. too bad it’s the least successful of his pieces.

    otherwise this is the kind of thing that makes me jealous that i’m not doing such simple elegant impactful non-destructive things.

    Remind me of Nazca Lines. Though I have never seen them or been to that continent !

    @maxwelldog the reply “what art do you think lasts forever?” answers the question I have had in mind for years.. Trust farmers and people who sweat in the fields to come up words of such raw wisdom!

  17. i just wanted to chime in and say nice design.
