Stone Circle- Pittenweem Arts Festival

I am having difficulty embedding video into blog. Please click on following link to:
Stone Circle

This video was made last Sunday in Pittenweem, Fife at the end of their annual arts festival.

The Japanese installation artist Yoshihito Kawabata imported stone from the north of Scotland, he put a message and signed each stone then laid them in a gigantic circle with part of it on the shore. As soon as the tide came in it took some stones away.

He believes in "free art" and he wanted his installation to be enjoyed by visitors to the Festival, and if they wanted a stone as a "keep-sake" then he was happy for them to take stones away. The sea, wind and waves took the rest...
