The Spiral Jetty
Opaque Display #1: Spiral Jetty (for Robert Smithson)

The first of a series of sculptures exploring the myth and machismo of some of the great moments of post-minimalist art. From the outside the piece appears to be a minimalist sculpture comprised of a metal cube on a wooden base. Upon closer inspection, peepholes and switches are found. When one looks into the peephole and pushes the button the interior lights up and a mechanical diorama of the Spiral Jetty is revealed. The rendering of this grandiose work of art at model scale with hobbiest flare delfates as it memorializes. The series came out of an interst in the power a piece of work can have, even when it is only experienced through representation.
