improvised…land art?

“Like his contemporaries in land art Andy Goldsworthy and Christo and Jeanne-Claude, Polissky takes photos of his wprks before they melt or are blown away, then sells them in galleries. But unlike those artists, he and his team build the pieces without detailed drawings or plans. “Materials usually suggest the form,” he says.”

– from Nicolay Polissky’s web site, from a Readymade article.
I came across him this morning because of this NYT article. (Via.) Lots of pictures. They’re extraordinary. Fields of snowmen, towers of wood…He has a piece called "The Large Hadron Collider."
