Abstract
The 1979 sculpture symposium, "earthworks: land reclamation as sculpture," was held in King County, Washington, to create a new tool in the rehabilitation of technologically abused land. Artists were given the opportunity to design for surplus gravel pits, surface mines, and landfill sites. Phase I of the project was the rehabilitation of an abandoned 4-acre pit in south King County. Phase II was a design symposium where artists were assigned a variety of damaged sites ranging from 200 to 400 acres. The artists were asked to create reclamation plans, conforming to all local and state reclamation standards, in the form of earthwork proposals. This report describes in detail the entire project as conceived, constructed, and completed.
