casting glances at Smithson

James Benning's new film screened in Los Angeles tonite... it's an elegant, eighty-minute homage to Smithson's Spiral Jetty and takes the form of an extended series of one-minute shots of the jetty filmed over the course of a couple of years. Without presuming to have an easy answer, Benning seems interested in what happens when geologic time meets cinematic time?
