Audio Transcript of Lifted Conical Depression by Meg Webster

Meg Webster is an artist who embraces nature. Since the 1980s she has formed earth’s materials, such as soil, salt, hay and water, into simple minimalist shapes, including cones, mounds and spheres. From a distance her low lying copper ring may look like an ordinary planter. Once you are at the ring, however, the viewer will note that this is an extraordinary garden with growing Cloudberry which slowly descends in a conical shape into the earth. With the dynamic brevity of a haiku [Japanese lyric poem], art and nature are intertwined.
