If a tree falls in the woods but there's no one around to hear it, does it make a sound? The Estonian Academy of the Art's most recent installation of three giant wooden megaphones within the deep forests of Estonia is making sure that that fallen tree's sound is heard. These megaphones have been constructed to amplify the deep sounds of nature. With half the country of Estonia covered in forests the culture is deeply tied to them. Hikers can now experience nature amplified, using these megaphones as a pit stop to rest and experience the surroundings with a sensory immersion. The three megaphones have been strategically placed so that they can be crawled into to experience the amplified sounds of nature, or place yourself in the middle where the three funnel their sound, merging together which creates a surround sound effect. This is a new generation of Earth works, and now on my travel bucket list.
A gathering of inspiration, thought experiments, and injections of where life is art.

Celebrating the act of urban exploration and the beauty in the industry, artist Paige Smith installs urban geodes to inspire a global art hide and seek. Each geode is hand crafted from folded paper or poured resin individually to fit perfectly in to its urban decay crevasse. Paige creates these hidden gems among spaces that she feels inspired by, crafting a beauty in the mundane, and showing others the beauty lies all around us.
