Silent witness


Vermont, USA

2011

Beckers created an organic “Silent witness” in the forests of Vermont, USA , as a commission for an environmental artwork. The sculpture was integrated into its surroundings in the woodland.


Using only natural materials indigenous to the area, Beckers has created a permanent site-specific sculpture which draws out the character of its environment. This environmental artwork is a testament to the simplicity of ecological art.


Ecological relationships are addressed not only through materiality, but also at several crucial scales. Through the choice of local material - the artwork becomes part of the landscape itself.
