What if most of this water were land?
Green has the latest on the new threat to the Spiral Jetty
, a fertilizer production
operation that could lower the Great Salt Lake's levels permanently and turn Smithson's
masterpiece into a permanently landlocked work... which would be sad, Smithson's
work is all about changing
land water and sky interactions
. Not to mention the gigantic fertilizer operation
would significantly alter the Great Salt Lake's shoreline and ecosystem. I find
it interesting how art has become a water rights/environmental lightning rod here...
would Mono lake's levels have been more protected if it had a Smithson earthwork
(which was considered)?
