Photographer, sculptor and land artist Robert Smithson was fascinated with the concept of landscape as art. Spiral Jetty, one of his most well-known works, is 1,500 feet long and 15 feet wide, and composed of 7,000 tons of mud, salt crystals and basalt rocks. Constructed in 1970 and configured in a counterclockwise spiral in Great Salt Lake, Utah, Smithson’s work is still intact today. Seen here in a photograph taken by David Burdeny in 2017, this formation is an artful reminder of the significance of preservation in art and in nature.
