A musician at King’s College Hospital in London played the violin while surgeons operated on her brain to remove a tumour.

Jon Foreman is a creator of various styles of land art, be it with stones or leaves, inland or on beaches. He has even created works in derelict environments using materials such as broken glass or ashes and general debris.
The scale of his work varies massively; he may use stones or driftwood to make something small and minimal. Otherwise he may be seen drawing massive scale sand drawings up to 50 metres across.
Most often the weather and immediate climate will make his work disappear (be blown down/washed away by the tide), and sometimes other people will interfere. This is all part of the creative process and has proven to benefit his work.
You can find all of his fantastic works on his website where he also sells prints. You can also follow him on his socials listed below.
