Andrew Rogers – Rhythms Of Life – sculptural land art project

The concept of Rhythms Of Life has evolved to become a global phenomenon, with many countries embracing the idea of a universal, life affirming symbol, expressed as a monumental land art sculpture. Andrew Rogers decision to extend the original sculptural form of his ‘Rhythms of Life’ sculpture onto a global scale was a visionary and bold undertaking. His innate ability to adapt a broad scope of materials into graceful and enticing sculptures, with an appealing sense of balance, has bestowed him the ability to tackle the enormous challenges required by this huge project.

When I first saw Andrew Rogers ‘Rhythms of Life’ sculpture at the Victorian Art Centre, I was impressed with its vibrancy and expansiveness and in retrospect I can now see how it has fed the impetus for future geoglyphs. This project has now expanded, since 1999, to become the largest collective land art project in the world, where Andrew Rogers has traversed the globe, liaising with different countries, to create modern geoglyphs that resonate with the local landscapes, cultures and indigenous stones and rocks. Local customs and peoples have also been integrated into the process of constructing these land art creations.

Created with local granite


Most of the ancient traditions harbor a deep empathy with their lands along with sacred beliefs locked into the local terrains. A great deal of respect and sensitivity was required in the negotiations to introduce a contemporary land art sculpture into these diverse locations. In addition to installing recurring geoglyphs of the ‘Rhythms of Life symbol’, to reinforce the concept of a global universality, his team have worked with local elders, museums and other lore-keepers to design a symbol relevant to their area as a companion land art. To date, the project has involved over 7,500 people, in 16 countries across seven continents with the first one being constructed in the Arava Desert in Israel.
For Andrew, the Rhythms of Life sculpture encapsulates the continual evolution and restless dynamic of creation and the circular nature of the patterns of birth life and death and I would love to see more additions to this vast endeavour in the future.
