    This relates to your previous feed on Landscape as art or music. The need for interpretation begs the question as to the need for an audience too. I like Alan Weisman’s image ‘The World Without Us’ – suggesting that the at many levels the landscape has no need of audience or conductor.

    (1) I think it was Weisman I heard say on the radio that ‘all species become extinct’
    (2) I drilled into a 700 million year old mudstone yesterday and, looking at the mud dust, thought that I was putting it back to how it used to be
    (3) Think about 1 tree in a hectare of grassland. If it was planted by man it is completely different to a self-sown tree, even if they are physically idendical: so I believe the audience/conductor DOES matter
