This sculpture was done by Robert Smithson. He is an earthwork sculpture, who uses the earth to make something amazing. This spiral was constructed on the northeastern shore of the Great Salt Lake, Utah. The spiral has been submerged and uncovered many times since its construction due to water levels rising and falling. It was constructed in April of 1970 and only took six days to make. I think this work is beautiful because it is adding to the natural beauty of earth and looks amazing. This is different from other forms of work because it makes such a great impact on the world. It is pleasing to the eye, functional, and send s a message.
