Syd Carpenter, La Cresta
As part of a larger landscape plan, the latest addition to Woodmere’s grounds is a collaboration with Philadelphia artists Syd Carpenter and Steve Donegan. The land-sculpting installation takes inspiration from the horticultural practice of hügelkulture. Visually, La Cresta is comprised of two large organic mounds designed by the artists and inspired in part by the forms of sprouting seed pods. It is a work of art that blurs the line between creativity and horticultural practice.
