Pot Holes

Pete Dungey: pothole gardens

Last March I posted about Pete Dungey's amazing Pothole Gardens. Needless to say, I think this winter beat last winter hands down. So much snow! I wonder how long it will take us all to be idolising snow again? Willing for it to fall from the sky and make everything beautifully dusted with white...

...yeah, falling for it already I'm sure. Don't be fooled by it, just remember the pot holes...oh the potholes!

So now another artist has taken these malformations of the road and found her own unique method of fixing them. Juliana Santacruz Herrera has decorated the streets of Paris with pools of brightly coloured fabric braids.

Santacruz Herrera's Pothole project creates a colourful regrowth where the roads of Paris have become cracked and gnarled, which, alongside Dungey's Pothole Gardens, are definitely making the damaging potholes more festive!
