The Accidental Masterpiece: On The Art Of Life And Vice Versa


I enjoyed this book. My favorite chapter is “The art of the pilgrimage” and explores the practices of artists such as James Turrell, Micheal Heizer, and Matthew Barney which are more quirkier and extreme than I expected.

My friend went for her honeymoon out to check out some of these remote land art installations. She followed a map with precise GPS coordinates to reach a spot where she would be picked up and driven to a secret destination. On that trip, she saw “The lightning field” by Walter de Maria.
