The Kid Should See This

Neil Dawson’s Horizons on Gibbs Farm

Watch more with these video collections:

On Gibbs Farm in Kaipara Harbour, New Zealand, giant artworks pepper the landscape. The work was commissioned by entrepreneur and art collector Alan Gibbs from 22 artists, including Maya Lin, Sol LeWitt, Richard Serra, Anish Kapoor, Marijke de Goey, and Andy Goldsworthy.

Tom Scott visited Gibbs Farm to see its most famous piece: Horizons by Neil Dawson, “a cartoon tissue somehow painted onto the landscape.” From Atlas Obscura:

While it may appear to be a computer-generated cartoon, astoundingly, Horizons is a real sculpture made of welded and painted steel, and it fits in perfectly with the cow-filled agricultural landscape of the farm.


Get an up-close look at the piece in this short video:
