Recreation by Anh Dao
The first designation of land intended for recreational use were royal hunting parks in 1000 BC. By the Middle Ages, "deerparks" were used for recreational hunting by English aristocrats, while walled gardens housed plants from distant colonized lands. The ornamental garden was an aesthetic expression of beauty, a display of taste and wealth in civilized life. Recreation looks at peripheral moments of interactions with structures created to pre-determine how landscapes are experienced.
