Anyone know who made this image? (Or should we call it an earthwork?) I wonder if it is photoshopped or real? If it is a real image, kudos are due indeed for its creation and execution --- though I hope no trees were executed to create it.

It's a Spiral Jetty for the environmental cause.
So then that poses and interesting question. Is Spiral Jetty a work of art with an environmental message? It's all in how you interpret it of course, whether you focus on the bulldozer tearing up and reshaping the landscape --- or the heightened awareness of place and landscape that the earth-work has brought to people who have watched it surface and submerge over the last 38 years.
