Robert Morris to Samuel J. Wagstaff


February 13, 1967


Earthworks sound possible. Dirt art. Dirty art. Bogs. Geometric quagmires. Square swamps. Minimal muck. Suspicious spongy unsound sod. Gray grass. Slow quicksand. (No rock gardens). (No plants). (No flowers). Plains, heaths, holes, and slight rises. Straight and narrow paths, or no paths at all. (No lanes, bowers, gazebos, nests, hiding places). No hairy grabbing vines. No bushes, golfers or ducks, Nature at her fatuous flat chested best.
