WASHINGTON MONUMENT PROJECT: THE RED PYRAMID, 1980

Pigment, dimensions vary.

National Mall, Washington D.C.


The Washington Monument Project was a site-specific work that consisted of trenches dug into the earth due West, due North and due East of the Washington Monument obelisk, the form corresponds to the tip of the monument, so that throughout the day, and at the intersection of the directional lines,  the shadow of the Monument aligns to the red pigment trenches in the ground, indicating how fast we are rotating around the sun.
