"3 Weeks, 6 Earthworks, 1 Portable Studio, and ALL that Lies In Between"

Saturday, March 12 - 2:00PM to 2:45PM
Atlanta 1&2

We spent three weeks in the summer of 2009 driving across the American West creating art in response to six famous earthworks: Robert Smithson's Spiral Jetty and Amarillo Ramp, Nancy Holt's Sun Tunnels, Michael Heizer's Double Negative, James Turrell's Roden Crater, and Walter De Maria's Lightning Field. This pilgrimage also featured an investigation of the "in between": Wayne Thiebaud meets Ed Ruscha in the form of floating fake desserts in enticing swimming pools, cleaning the Sky Walk at the Grand Canyon, and conversation maps that record how we truly arrived at our destinations not just the terrain.
