An ambitious land-art project set to appear in the fields and pastures of the South Pennine uplands made by farmers, cyclists and artists.
Day two of the Grand Depart takes the riders through the South Pennine uplands, an area of outstanding moorland and pasture that includes Ilkley Moor. It is here that artists, environmentalists, schoolchildren, hundreds of young farmers and local cyclists will sow, cut and weave original designs into the hillsides and grasslands around the race route.
The project brings together commissioned artists working with hundreds of local people to cultivate a patchwork of field-size living installations including three sites designed to grow into natural settings for live performances. These will be animated by music and dancing, curated by arts festivals who are based nearby. This network of locally produced art and reimagined landscape will change and grow over the coming months to form a once-in-a-lifetime experience of the South Pennines.
Made by many different groups of people, influenced by a unifying theme of water and its role in our green spaces - Fields of Vision will be made complete by the much anticipated journey of the cyclists through the landscape - arriving as a peloton and threading across the scene like a stitch along a quilt.
