Fields and roads
“If you look closely at a landscape – the hills, woods, houses, but also the rivers and roads – you’ll notice that the harmony of that landscape depends on a subtle balance between immobile masses and connecting roads. Which is also the case without humans present (…). Things alone are enough. Thus, some of these things are not neutral, you can pass through them, but at the same time have a close look at them. It’s the case with the hill, the valley, the plain. Anyone can put in them as much dynamics and stability as he wants.”
Michel Tournier, “Petites Proses” (1986).
