© Diana Lynn Thompson, 2002. Meander, outdoor installation, Silvrett Atelier, Austria, 197’x50’. Meander, a semi-permanent work made of stone, was created directly beneath the Silvretta dam in the Austrian Alps. Thompson’s Meander makes reference to the river that once flowed through the valley, employing a watery, sinuous curve as counterbalance to the harsh setting. Using an existing cement culvert as a backbone, Thompson carried and placed rocks from the bulldozed slopes to create a low-lying, boat- shaped form that pools and takes its time, moving back and forth across the man-made valley. Viewed from the top of the dam, Meander appears as a discreet hand-written mark on a scraped and scoured basin.
