Smithson's Spiral Jetty is threatened by an oil development. Check out Tyler
to contact the people in Utah doing this TODAY before 7:00 PM ET
. I went to grad
school in Logan a couple of hundred miles away and as anyone who has ever visited
the site knows the isolation of the place is important. People in Utah often
don't appreciate this and plunk flame spewing oil refineries in some of the
most scenic areas imaginable so this is a very real threat. Hell, I even got Chas
Bowie this show at Chambers
a few years ago because I though his photos
of the site were important.
Definitely stay tuned... Ill have PORT's 2008 curatorial roundup posted later today. Also,
yes I'll post the results of PORT's bridge design contest early next week. Sorry
about the backlog, Ive been very busy.
After visiting the Spiral Jetty, I felt that Smisthson chose a location next to the decaying oil drilling jetty, because it gave a real example of entropy to Smithson's metaphorical spiral.
