I was joined by my friend and collaborative artist Miriam Troth we discused the work of Smithson and I asked Miriam to film me making this tribute to the late Smithson. Spiral Jetty has been an inspiration to my work processes. Spiral Jetty a constructed earthworkon the salt lakes of Utah U.S.A. by Smithson was created forty years ago. Smithson died in a plane accident after its construction.
One of my favourite works of Smithson is floating Island. A man-made island with plants and trees pulled by a small tug boat along the Manhattan shoreline. Film Recording Miriam Troth Editing Diane Roberts
