Inspired by the Spiral Jetty (1972) by Robert Smithson, one of the most famous and enduring of the land art pieces, Spiral Wetland reaches back to the beginning of eco-art but envisions the next stage of our thinking: to heal and transform the environment for better.  These constructed wetlands help to remove excess nutrients from water by exposing the water to microbial processes facilitated by the plants and organic matter of the soil. They work to improve water quality and produce much needed wetland habitats for fish and other water creatures, while reminding us of the roots of land art.
