Living Concrete art: Water and Clay Altering Sculptures during a whole weekend

Clay and water installation outside the festival room

Water sprinklers attacked the clay during the whole weekend. Earth water found its way to the play ground. The same artist had done a similar thing on a smaller scale last year.
He calls himself Urban Art Spatwork aka Gassy Recipe and is from Belgium.
For me this is an example of concrete art, an echo of concrete poetry and concrete music.
I imagined pictures in the back of concrete poems and a musical score on the background of contemporary composers like Luigi Nono, Mauricio Kagel or Helmut Lachenmann.
Who thinks that the spirit of the sixties is dead must really examine his/her head!(GV)
