Charles Ross: Star Axis
Posted by Scott
Star Axis is “an architectonic earth/star sculpture” (detailed info here) by American artist Charles Ross. Conceived in 1971 and began in 1976, Star Axis — located on a Mesa in New Mexico — is scheduled for completion in 2013. Sadly there aren’t a whole lot of photos of this incredible structure out there. I guess I’ll have to take a trip down to Mesa.

This combined with James Turrell’s Roden Crater project will make a pretty compelling argument for an awesome SW roadtrip whenever they open to the public

This is also featured in Gregory Colbert’s multi-faceted work titled “Ashes and Snow”
In the film portion, he has some spectacular shots of eagles/hawks, elephants and dancers in and around these sculptures. It’s a great visual experience, I highly recommend it.

It’s looking great. Were you out there recently? I was out there in the summer/fall of 2003.
