The mirrors are disconnected surfaces. The pressure of the raw material against the mirrored surface is what provides its stability. The surfaces are not connected the way they are in the non-sites. The earth maps, on the other hand, are left on the sites. For instance, I have a project pending in Texas that will involve a large oval map of the world that existed in the Cambrian era. Like the map of a prehistoric island I built on quicksand in Alfred, New York. The map was made of rock. It sank slowly.
In its other sense as a map, the spiral shape has lost the crisp geometric tidiness evident in both Aerial Map and Gyrostasis. Thanks to its rough-hewn composition, its own shape and surface are as rugged as the earth onto which it settles; only the lake around it retains smoothness as a dominant quality. 9). These images testify not just to the irregularity of the grid that the Spiral Jetty throws down upon the earth but also to something quite special about the particular grid form they instantiate.
If the earth is always already a map—a map of itself, thanks to the manifestation of its own configurations—a site (in Smithson's sense of the term: an actual location on Earth) can become a map if the earth artist intervenes effectively to make this happen. Which is just what Smithson himself does in his earth works, which reconfigure the earth as he finds and selects and scans it. Both of these senses of map must be distinguished from the mapping accomplished by the non-site, a mapping that is itself twofold: first, cartographic mapping in the usual sense of abstract and two-dimensional representation of landscape and regional structures (the aerial views of photography become part of this same cartographic venture); then, "non-site" mapping in the strict sense of artificial and three-dimensional, for example, the boxes in which found materials are exhibited and that possess closed limits in the form of frames or sides or walls.
