Expecting Nothing is Going to Change is a land artwork which is dedicated to existing no longer than its natural durability.
Human beings denial for finiteness leads us to believing that things could be permanent. We spend a tremendous energy everyday building, preserving, conserving, and freezing in time things with the futile hope to challenge impermanency that rules the whole universe.
Expecting Nothing is Going to Change shall consist of 8’x16’ billboard made with untreated wood esthetically located in a sublime landscape. On the billboard and on site will be painted in an impressionist manner the view the billboard is hiding by its presence. No intend will be made to preserve the installation, and its decay until full erosion will be documented over time.
This land art project is happening thanks to funds coming from:
- 2017 Marcia Grand Centennial Prize Competition
- 2017 Medici Scholar Award
The project will be permanently installed at thelandwithnoname.net/ until its full decay without any intent to preserve or restore the work. We chose non-treated wood for a better aesthetic of the decay that will be regularly documented.
