Michael Heizer’s Double Negative

Authors: Risatti, Howard

Source: Sculpture; December 2003, Vol. 22 Issue 10, p18-19, 2p

Abstract:Michael Heizer's earthwork Double Negative is discussed. This work was created on a site of barren scrub land in the Nevada Desert in 1969–70. It entailed the excavation of two 30-foot-wide, 50-foot-deep trenches that create a five-story-high artificial canyon with precisely cut vertical walls, dwarfing the human body in actual size as well as relative scale. Conceived as space created through the negation of matter, it embodies the idea that an artwork can exist outside the institution of art.
