I have chosen three artists whose art deals with manipulation of the
environment. They are Christo, Stan Herd and Robert Smithson. I am
looking at the works "Wrapped Coast, Spiral Jetty and Herd's field
portrait of a native American." My main focus is to look at the
processes which they work, the possibility of environmental damage (both
long and short term), the morality of creating such works and any steps
that the artists may take to prevent or correct damage. If anyone has
suggestions or information about the artists, please e-mail me.
