The Lost Forest World of the World’s Largest Cave.
In 1991, a local farmer by the name of Ho Khanh was walking along a stretch of lush forest within the heart of the Phong Nha Ke Bang National Park in Quang Binh province, near the border between Laos and Vietnam. It was an area that he had passed many times before and he was not paying any particular attention to his surroundings when suddenly the jungle floor opened up beneath him and Mr. Khanh only barely managed to hold on as the ground crumbled beneath him. When he was able to get his bearings, he peered into the gaping chasm that had suddenly appeared out of the thick foliage and saw that there was now a steep drop where he had stood that descended down into darkness. By pure chance and blind luck, this man had discovered an entrance that had remained hidden from man for millions of years into what would turn out to be the largest cave in the world, a behemoth five times larger than the largest known cave at the time.

Claire Morgan: Sculpture and Installation ART from BELFAST

on Facebook

Claire Morgan was born in Belfast, North Ireland in 1980 and she is now living and working in London. Her art is really fascinating, recalling something between sculpture and installation. With obsessive precision she builds an hanging solid made by a lot of little “atoms”, little thistle and dandelion seeds, leaves or fruit flies. Every atom is fixed to an invisible string. When the viewer walks behind this suspended sculpture, the installation is moved by the air and magically the strings are opened like the curtains of a stage, showing the real work of art. Inside the solid there is an stuffed animal, freeze in one of its natural movement: you can see a crow falling down died or a barn owl flying with its triumphal wings.
