A streamlined record of the construction of Holt’s iconic earthwork, Sun Tunnels, Holt’s accompanying film is both documentation and an independent moving image work. The mammoth undertaking unfolds as a series of moments, from the mundanity of shoveling dirt by hand, to the tense magnitude of a concrete tunnel suspended mid-air. The film reaches a beautiful conclusion in a display of the dance between the sunlight, the tunnels, and the desert surrounds at various times of day.
Distribution with the cooperation of the Holt/Smithson Foundation.
