I heard on the radio this morning from our local station BBC Radio Cornwall that the Eden Project is celebrating fifteen years since opening. This sparked my memories of taking my daughters to the Eden Project many times over the years and all the hidden treasures we would find amongst the flora and the blooms of living artworks that danced in the wind. And, of course, this is still the case today. The Eden Project is a continually growing and changing piece of spectacular artwork with contrasts of softness of the plants against the sculptural forms of the giant biomes. Where ever you go at Eden creativity, education and innovation excel – no wonder it is still a key attraction in Cornwall!
A pictorial archive of some of the wonderful colours and forms at The Eden Project:
Sunflowers act as a reminder of a great Vincent Van Gogh painting.
Rich colours as thick as oil on a canvas.
Yellow sculptural pompoms.
Sculptures amongst the planting.
Soft and hard textures like a mixed media artwork
Strong colours in the sunlight.
Recycling into art
The sunlight captures the biomes
It could almost be a painting – taken from the balcony at the entrance area
Happy memories at The Eden Project from a little girl who is not so little now!
