Robert Smithson is most well known for his work in the field of Land Art, particularly spiral jetty.

‘Instead of causing us to remember the past like the old monuments, the new monuments seem to cause us to forget the future’ – This quote from the artist himself describes for me the very thing I love most about his work, it allows you to be immersed in that moment surrounded within the landscape to experience the almost impossible feeling of capturing what should not be captured. Using the landscape to further the landscape , such ephemeral qualities , many rocks so landscape. The use of natural materials an using the landscape as a gallery is something which I am increasingly interested in.
