Lifepath, a Land art artwork created by Jordi NN for the GNAP Mongolia in 2022, is a powerful symbolic representation of the journey of life. The artwork invites us to reflect on the choices and actions that shape our lifepath and the inherent interconnectedness of all things.
Created on a flat plateau in the Mongolian steppe, the artwork is made by gathering volcanic stones and organizing them from natural chaos to a harmonic geometric line shape that measures 25 meters in length. The harmonious arrangement of stones represents the balance and harmony that we all strive for in life.
From the ground, the artwork completely blends in with the natural surroundings, and it is only when the spectator takes a step back and views it from a distance that its monumental scale becomes apparent. This creates a powerful metaphor for life, where we often only see the next step ahead of us, and it is only when we look back that we can appreciate the full journey we have travelled.
Lifepath invites us to reflect on the choices and actions that have brought us to where we are today and to consider the impact that each decision has on our lifepath and the world around us. It is a reminder of the interconnectedness of all things and a call to make conscious choices that contribute positively to our journey and the journey of those around us.
Lifepath serves as a powerful reminder of the fragility and interconnectedness of life, encouraging us to take a step back and consider the journey we are on. Through its use of natural materials and harmonious shape, the artwork invites us to contemplate the impact of our choices and actions on our own path and on the world around us. As we reflect on our past and present, Lifepath reminds us that every decision we make has the power to shape our future and the future of those around us. It is a call to make conscious choices that lead to positive outcomes, contributing to a more harmonious and connected world.
