Peter Santino's "All Happy Now" Earth Sculpture

Santino's "All Happy Now" Earth Sculpture is a merger of two ancient landscape architectural features, the ziggurat and the labyrinth, and a mathematical equation named Fermat's Spiral.  Utilizing computer software Fermat's spiral was input, drafted and then extruded.  The construction of "All Happy Now" was largely done by hand.  There are two unique, non-intersecting quarter mile pathways which take the walker to the center and back down and out the opposite side of the sculpture entered. 

Although first and foremost a work of art, the sculpture is interactive and is utilized as a labyrinth.  Take your shoes off and enjoy the tactile and meditative experience of following Fermat's spiral labyrinth-ziggurat up to its center.  The "All Happy Now" Earth Sculpture Garden is a wonderful space for a lively celebration or serene meditation.
