Thoughts of the Day #29/2014: Robert Smithson (8) / Black Rain (1)

"I developed a dialectic between the mind-matter aspects of nature. My view became dualistic, moving back and forth between the two ones. It's not involved with nature, in the classical sense.

There's no anthropomorphism reference to environment. But I do have a stronger tendency towards the inorganic and organic. The organic is closer to the idea of nature: I'm more interested in the denaturalization or in artifice than I am in any kind of naturalism.
