The final day arrived and before the closing ceremony was upon us we all needed to make the finishing touches to our sculptures. I had placed mine along the old road that lead to three of the installations and new that the setting sun would illuminate the ephemeral details at precisely 6.30pm just as everyone was visiting each site.
Each installation created by the student groups was quite remarkable, unrestrained as they were from what has gone before in the land art movement. They were free to create whatever their imaginations conjured up and each was as interesting and unique from the others. I was so impressed but their journey and so many of them had had a remarkable experience. I made dozens of friends and was so happy to have helped open so many eyes to the joy in this artform.
I was quite emotional to leave but hopefully one day I will be able to return to Rachana and once again experience the warmth of my Lebanese friends.
