The artwork SPRING COLORS was an intervention of land art “in progress”: started on March 21st, the first day of Spring, the installation has grown week after week, during the 3 months period, in dialogue with surrounding plants growth.
The artwork was formed by 400 flags of 6 shades of color. Each of them was associated with the color of a specific biological officinal cultivation present in the area: purple for the Echinacea purpurea, orange for the Calendula officinalis, blue for the Linum usitatissimum, yellow for the Hypericum perforatum, pink for the Echinacea pallida and white for the Pimpinella anisum.
