Land Art Database 0

A new project here at Sixteen Miles of String: The Land Art Database (or The LAD). I'm going to start cataloging the locations of various pieces of land art in Google Maps. I'll be trying to write a quick note about one a week, but for now I've stuck down markers for two pieces you can see from Google's satellite images: Robert Smithson's Spiral Jetty and Michael Heizer's City.

I set it on 'Terrain' mode because I think it looks the most pleasant embedded on the site, but click the 'Satellite' button if you want to see the actual pieces from above. (It is interesting that the terrain maps don't include either Spiral Jetty or City.)

For now I'm going to focus on post-war pieces made by people that would consider themselves artists. (In other words, I won't be putting Stonehenge on here.) Since so much of this work is located in rather remote areas, I think much of it is going to be wonderfully difficult to find. Many of the places / pieces I've dug around for aren't (or are just barely) visible since their locales haven't been extensively photographed, sort of reconfirming the truth that you you ultimately just have to see a lot of this in person.

Send over an e-mail if you have any other locations; I'd appreciate it!
