8 Easy Pieces

Here are some classics:

Walter De Maria, Lightning Field

Michael Heizer, Double Negative

Michael Heizer, City

Nancy Holt, Sun Tunnels

Robert Morris, Observatory

James Turrell, Roden Crater

Robert Smithson, Spiral Jetty

Donald Judd, Chinati Foundation

I'll come back to each of these later on, once things get going, but for now we need some sort of foundation to get the ball rolling. I know, they're mostly American males of a certain generation but we'll work on that.

Art from Space is an exploration of art-related phenomena that manifests in interesting ways on Google’s aerial maps. It is also an experiment in curatorial practice; collecting, presenting and contextualising items in ways that users can explore, free of curator-imposed framing and sequencing. This blog is Art from Space’s developmental musings made public, where items are introduced to the project in real time, rather than awaiting the grand unveiling of a completed exhibition. Specific locations of interest are highlighted in CAPS and linked to a map for further exploration. Visit the mother ship HERE.
