Amazing Water Curtain in the Woods of France


The “Bridal Veil” fall is not exactly your typical art project, and it most certainly isn’t a common sight one would come across in nature (unfortunately, we might add). This water curtain is in fact an art installation built for the Horizons “Art Nature” festival which is an annual event that takes place in France and has featured some amazing pieces over the years.
The curtain is meant to be a horizontal continuation of the natural fall from which it gathers its water, similar to how a train “follows” the bridal gown. The delicate distribution of light across a deposit of volcanic ash create a sublime image that give the installation its name.
