In 1995, two adventurous artists decided to follow their hearts, creative instincts and life principles to draw a symbolic line around the earth. They embarked on a global environmental art project to create twelve ephemeral sculptures in remote mountain locations around the world. The sculptures were made from natural materials found at each site, enduring only in the mind (and in photographs) as an artistic evocation of the temporary and interconnected nature of life.
Fine Line is Hill and Jones’ personal story of a 25-year commitment to art and to nature. The Fine Line they express with their stories, sculptures and breath-taking photography speaks to the fundamental disconnect of our time – humanity’s fractured relationship with nature.
Over 200 superb photographs accompanied by compelling essays by international specialists in systems theory, climate science, fine art photography and regenerative design further elaborate on the artists’ ecological philosophy. The end result is a book that is powerful, timely and inspiring.
