It is hard not to appreciate nature in whatever form it comes in, even something as fabricated as this torn paper garden An art installation, it appears to depict a range of snowy mountain, yet it has been constructed completely out of torn paper. Dubbed 'Silent Geography,' it is currently on display at the Mixed Greens gallery in New York.

The torn paper garden was created by Scott Hazard, an artist based in North Carolina. Mixed Greens writes, "Yet here the wilderness is not exactly that of nature but rather the din of flowing information, language, and symbol that surrounds most urban-dwellers on a daily basis. Into this flow Hazard creates a momentary pause, an immersive space of rest in which language is once again ordered and reduced to its simplest designative function."
