Thoughts of the Day #35/2014: Robert Smithson (15) / Morton Subotnick (2) / Lost Trail (1)

Robert Smithson (1938-1973)

"Many would like to forget time altogether, because it conceals the "death principle" (every authentic artist knows this). Floating in this temporal river are the remnants of art history, yet the "present" cannot support the cultures of Europe, or even the archaic or primitive civilizations; it must instead explore the pre- and post-historic mind; it must go into places where the remote futures meet remote pasts."
