The Site_Specific Geoglyph Art project is driven by Anni Snyman and her brother PC van Rensburg, a powerful team combining the skills of a visual artist and an architect. Together they design and plan the logistics of each project, taking along a Site_Specific Collective team of supporters, volunteers and visual artists to help render each earth drawing, activating temporary land and nature artworks on site.
