Editors note: BLNK is ongoing series of photo essays documenting art works and events we deem notable. In this post, photographer Juozas Cernius visits Robert Smithson’s monumental earth work, Spiral Jetty. Executed in 1970, the 1500 foot long counter-clockwise spiral jutts out from the shore of the Great Salt Lake in Utah. It is only visible when the water in the lake falls below 4,197.8 feet, which means it submerged for almost 3 decades after its construction. It reappeared in 2004, after a drought, and remains exposed at this time.
