“ A redefinition of what constitutes sculpture: an opening of the sculptural object to the natural processes of weathering, ageing and deterioration.” 1 (Woods, 151)
Robert Smithson’s Spiral Jetty is a good example of postmodern art. It is located on the shores of Great Lake, Utah. This scupture shows the minimalism of the postmodern sculpture. We can see that, the site of the sculpture is open to weathering and ageing. The spiral is built of salt and mud mostly. Smithson’s sculpture is succesful because he has observed the surface features of the area well and the place is well integrated with the environment around. (Woods, Tim)
