MY STATEMENT
To see the world in a Grain of Sand, the poetic insight of William Blake, is to find relationships between the big and small, science and spirituality, the universe and the landscape. This cosmic setting provides the narrative for my content-driven work, the writing and design. I explore metaphors that underlie both growing nature and the laws of nature, parallels that root us personally in the cosmos as firmly as a plant, even while our mind escapes this home.
Charles Jencks designs landscapes and sculpture and writes on cosmogenic art. He is known for his books questioning Modern architecture and defining its successors – Late, New and Post-Modern architecture, and is the co-founder of Maggie Cancer Caring Centres. He is married to Louisa Lane Fox who published an Anthology of Letters and Diaries from Parents to Children: in 2009.

levels of smooth grassy planes stack atop each other in ‘cells of life’ — a monumental, on-site land installation conceived by american artist charles jencks for jupiter artland. jencks, who is educated as an architect, applies his extensive training in landscaping and planning to his massive horticulture installations. the layers of green swirl in fluid geometric shapes, cascading in sheets through the lush space. ‘cells of life’ is made up of eight landforms and a connecting causeway, which visitors are encouraged to drive across. the mounds of grass surround four lakes and a flat island where smaller sculptures are exhibited. the configuration of the landscape is influenced by the biology of the cell, the basic unit of life, particularly the process of mitosis, when one cell divides into two in stages called. the landform celebrates the cell as the foundation of life. the foundation for his interpretation is evident in the layout — from above, you can distinguish the distinct halving of two landforms, an uncanny relationship to division of membranes and nuclei.
the artists are invited to exhibit work on the gardens, fields and woodlands surrounding a historic jacobean manor house with an 100-acre estate. the relationship of each artwork with its unique location is an important feature of the artland — every work is site specific and is integrated in some way into its surrounding environment. jupiter artland is a work-in-progess, presenting new projects and commissioning work annually.

Ландшафтный художник Чарльз Дженкс (Charles Jencks), да-да, именно художник, а не дизайнер, потратил в общей сложности не одну сотню часов на протяжении 2003-2010 годов, чтобы реализовать свой ландшафтный проект.
Буквально, название «Cells of Life» можно перевести, как «клетки жизни», хотя и не совсем корректно. Проект был реализован в частном эдинбургском парке скульптур, что в Шотландии. Работа является этапом более масштабного проекта, под названием «Jupiter Artland». В общей сложности, «Cells of Life» включает в себя восемь форм рельефа и соединительную дамбу. Название проекта неслучайно, Чарльз Дженкс (Charles Jencks) вдохновлялся изучением живых клеток и их делением (митоз).

Jupiter Artland, situado en el terreno privado de Bonnington House, a pocos kilómetros al oeste de Edimburgo, es un jardín único y sorprendente. Su mayor particularidad son las obras de artistas contemporáneos que pueblan la vegetación: algunas, como los enormes montículos de la entrada, los Life Mounds de Charles Jencks (que representan la vida a través de la célula y la mitosis, su división), saltan a la vista; otras están ocultas en los muchos rincones de Jupiter Artland, y solo las encontrarás paseando sin rumbo.
Aunque al entrar se te entregará un mapa y la región tiene algunos senderos, la única manera de explorar Jupiter Artland es caminando, adentrándote entre los bosquecillos y praderas y descubriendo las instalaciones por ti mismo. Por el camino, te toparás con jaulas, casitas, rocas entre los troncos, señales y esculturas de niñas que lloran junto a los árboles, desconsoladas, de la artista Laura Ford. También podrás ver obras del artista Ian Hamilton Finlay, el creador del jardín Little Sparta. Una instalación artística rodeada de naturaleza y tranquilidad y repleta de descubrimientos que seguro que te sorprenderá.
