- Ratio Utah, 2011, the sculpture that Herbert Steiner commissioned from Andrew Rogers, in Green River, Utah. Behind it are the Book Cliffs.
He also made national news this spring when, out of nowhere, he bid on the future of the granddaddy of earth artworks, Robert Smithson's Spiral Jetty.
- Sometimes Spiral Jetty disappears underwater. Smithson might have liked the idea of a blind man owning the land.
There's more info about Andrew Rogers's Ratio Utah sculpture; Rogers calls Steiner's humble commission "one of the most unusual" he's ever received in 21 years as an artist. Meanwhile, Rogers is a phenom in his own right: His ongoing Rhythms of Life land art project is 47 large-scale stone structures on all 7 continents (or ephemeral "geoglyphs," as in Antartctica). Here's a clickable PDF from Rogers, with lots of pics of Ratio and Rhythms.
