    Not all is good if you have to live beside it.

    I live right beside what is called an “intervention” and I witnessed the bulldozing of the road and the landing and I’m forced to “participate” everyday by seeing something so out of place, it can only be called an abomination. The intervention called “Big Blue” by Gustavo Godoy is completely in my face. When i moved to the high desert, I chose it for its privacy and beauty. From now on, I’m the one who must “participate” in some crude artist struggle and remember on a daily basis how the valley looked before it was desecrated. I’ll remember when it was untouched and perfect. Now, a color so unnatural, its glare rings loud any time there’s sunlight. This Big Blue is by definition a monstrosity. A degenerate production that facilitated the destruction of what was once a quiet country neighborhood. The selfish and ill thought out participation in my valley will linger even after that eyesore has withered and rotted. The concept , does not belong here. It is neither attractive nor facilitates positive discourse. All it’s accomplished is to advance the destruction of a piece of virgin desert. It could have been done anywhere in LA which is already destroyed, instead it’s destroyed something that was in complete harmony to gratify an ego. I remain a victim of this so called art but art would infer creative skill and imagination produced for beauty or emotional power but this blot on the landscape has neither. Its just egotism. Please, in the future, give much deeper thought to the ramifications of your actions. Consider the environment and the people it’ll directly affect.

Photographer Daniel Ranalli Spends Two Decades Capturing Snail Trails

“Spiral #9” (1996)

 

Massachusetts-based photographer Daniel Ranalli has spent more than 20 years on his “Snail Drawings,” a series which consists of one image of neatly configured snails and a second image of the unique patterns made when the snails were left to their own devices.

While a simple enough concept, Ranalli sees the project as a reflection of the inherent randomness of life and our inability to control the results or elements of a situation no matter how hard we might try! See more of Ranalli’s work below or on display at Classic Photographs Los Angeles January 21-22.
