  • Descrição: Lunberry criticizes Robert Smithson's Spiral Jetty, which emerges dramatically from the rocky shores of Utah's Great Salt Lake. Like a swirling vortex steadied and then stilled, the earthwork begins as a straight line of stone extending far into the water, the form then curving, arching and coiling in upon itself until abruptly coming to an end. Aside from a brief reemergence several years back, the inundating waters of the Great Salt Lake long ago essentially erased the stones from the scene, leaving barely a trace of the object, only the image remaining. And with its form underwater, what remains of the Spiral Jetty are printed pictures and written documents of a material form that has otherwise disappeared.
