Norfolk & Amiens

Regular readers will know that I tend to give short shrift to gimmicky art installations. Here's one I like: In Praise of Slow by landscapes designers group NineteenEightyOne. This traditional folly has an air of mystery about it that makes me want to explore. It's part of the hortillonnages (floating gardens) of Amiens in northern France, one of those hands-across-the-sea projects. This example is called Art, Cities and Landscape and is organised by the Borough Council of King's Lynn & West Norfolk in England and the Maison de la Culture d’Amiens in France. The idea is to create "alternative tourism" (CLICK).
