No Weather-Proofing Permitted

Erik Larsson’s ‘As You Fade’ is a series of cardboard gravestones set up in a field. Over time, Larsson photographed them as they withered under the natural conditions in which they were situated. The work is concerned with the concept of permanence and with the place it holds in our collective consciousness.

And it looks neat.

The city I live in, commissioned a biodegradable sculpture last year. It didn't last near as long as they were told it would. But, water and paper don't really get along...neat concept though...
