American artist Barry Underwood creates lighting installations inspired by cinema and contemporary art, situating them amidst gorgeous natural landscapes around the country. Construction of these pieces can take anywhere from a few days to several weeks. After they are placed outdoors, the artist photographs his painstakingly-crafted creations, thus leaving an enduring record of these otherwise temporary installations. Ultimately, his imaginative scenes rightfully draw our attentions to the beauty of the natural world. It is curious, I think, that we should sometimes need something so artificial (think, for instance, of the constructions of the great installation artist Christo) to help us more fully appreciate our terrestrial surroundings.
