Budapest-based artist Krisztián Balogh created a stunning piece of land art that looks as perfect as a digital rendering. Created in 2012, the land sculpture , called World Tree, was carved from peat bog in the shape of a tree viewed from an aerial perspective. The hand-carved World Tree stretches 10 meters (32 feet) in diameter in an undisclosed rural area. The artist, who has done several land art installations and sculptures, often looks to nature for inspiration. Related: These artists create mind-bending artwork solely from autumn leaves The temporary installation starts with a central X-shape representing a tree trunk that then splays out into branches in multiple directions. The carefully carved peat slabs float atop a bog. Water that shows through the gaps of the artwork give the World Tree its likeness to branching rivers. + Krisztián Balogh Via Colossal Images via Krisztián Balogh

If you stop to think about it, it’s quite odd that we flush our wastewater into local rivers, isn’t it? It flows away, only to be siphoned off and cleaned by the community downstream before repeating the entire process once again. It would make more sense to use clean water for things like drinking and bathing and then use that same water again for things that don’t require a potable source, like irrigating the landscape . That’s exactly how many architects are starting to design houses and public buildings, but if you don’t live a housing development that features built-in greywater systems, you can make a few minor modifications to your plumbing system and create a greywater wetland that allows your wastewater to be recycled into the landscape.
