Chris Booth's Balanced Stones
Chris Booth is a land artist from New Zealand who makes "living sculptures." Much of his work involves a process of "weaving" stones together, or stacking them into towers and other structures. He also works closely with the Maori community to ensure that his work respects their sacred sites throughout the New Zealand landscape.
He explains on his website: "Having the privilege of working on such broad and often visionary projects with diverse cultures in many countries over many years has allowed me to develop meaningful principles for making my land art. The underlying most important principle of all has been to create work that promotes a sense of balance, harmony and respect for our precious earth and all that lives on her."
