Cultural Confinement according to Robert Smithson I never understood american landart. Smithson and the rest of them were too abstract for me, although I thought that maybe I could change my opinion if I could ever go and see what they had done onsite. But I recently stumbled accross an excellent article about the beginning of land art in america which quoted Smithson, and I was most impressed...
i didn’t understand kinectic sculpture until i saw one of george rickey’s works in lehnin last summer, and i was checking out some of his works on youtube when i stumbled across the work of theo jansen. that is one crazy artist! very inspiring.
