30 Min. Land Art

This land art piece was inspired by Robert Smithson’s Spiral Jetty. I used different colored leaves from the park to replicate the Spiral Jetty’s counterclockwise spiral shape. Although my piece is extremely simple in comparison to Smithson’s, this experience showed me how working on land art pieces can be very difficult given that you have to take into consideration elements that would not affect your work if you were working in a studio (such as wind, which made it difficult for me to get the leaves to stay on the ground as I was finishing the piece).
