Summary
"Since 1970 Robert Smithson's earthwork Spiral Jetty has been a notable feature of the landscape and lakescape of the Great Salt Lake Valley. As more residents of the Wasatch Front have become aware of the artwork, especially since its initial reemergence in 1993 after a twenty-year long submersion in the lake, it has become a destination site for increasing numbers of day- trippers. It is also one of the most internationally famous art pieces of the late twentieth century, widely considered a central icon of the land art movement. This book covers the previously little-explored range of topics Smithson had in mind as he worked, many of which deal with place, including the particular place and space he found near here. It must necessarily refer to Smithson's narratives of his art--the essay and the films--so this book also contains a reprinting of the former and authorized transcriptions of the latter." -- Provided by publisher.
