"Created with bulldozer and dynamite in 1969 in the Nevada desert, Michael Heizer's Double Negative was one of the first and most influential of the monumental "earth works" sculptures created in and of the land by Heizer and other artist such as Robert Smithson and Christo. Double Negative, a 1,500-foot incision on the edge of a mesa 80 miles from Las Vegas, still exists: its site is now part of the collections of The Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles. The experience of this magnificent, expansive gesture is captured in 38 oversized plates that document the sculptures' creation and impart a sense of its scale."--the publisher.
