Cristo, Running Fences Trailer, 1972-76

I know some (probably most) have already seen this wonderful video, but we just watched it in Modern and Contemporary art. This clip from youtube is just a trailer of the 55 minute long video, but it gives you a good glimpse of this exciting and interesting piece of art (though the video itself is argued to be art itself as well). Running Fences was one of the first artistic explorations in land art and explores the measures artists go for art—and in the end, it is a beautiful and well-worth the time success. It's a lovely film to watch! Communal, public and land art all in one.
