Colorful Trunk-Lined Trenches

Wake by Michael McGillis, an artist based in Royal Oak, Michigan, is a stunning outdoor art installation involving tree trunks and one long trench. Instead of dirt packed walls, these trenches have been lined with logs of wood. But unlike the average log, the ends facing inwards have been painted a bright purple. Thus, the path becomes a vibrant experience that melds modern art with nature.

Installed at the Franconia Sculpture Park in Shafer, Minnesota, Wake by Michael McGillis spans 95 feet long. Although it is a simple idea, the result is a beautiful sight to behold. It can only be imagined how long it took to pile up the logs to begin with. Although such piles are common in the midwest, there is nothing common about Wake by Michael McGillis.
