Xerox Jetty

I got really excited about how Spiral Jetty deteriorated via a series of reproductions; creating (for me) a wonderful contrast between the physicality  of land art in a destination venue and the low-fi, populist recreation of it which makes it small-seeming and almost illegible, abstract. It’s funny to think that the significance/readability of the following images are, perhaps, just as remote in their accessibility, in so far as they are only relevent to one already familiar with Smithson’s work.
