Very interesting art, and beautiful setting. I would rather they be kept separate though, I like art in museums and my nature natural! That is really beautiful with the round colorful spheres.

Wow, I would have loved to see those installations. Spectacular.

I love the trampolines set in the sand. That was popular here but didn't work well in Tulsa because too much rain and the holes turned into mud pits. Plus snakes, mice, bugs, and such loved living in the moist dark.
