“Since each work sets up a perceptual structure, you’re always perceiving your own sight and your own perception relative to the structure, so there is a perceptual relativity which is also very physical and related to the level of the eye.” —Nancy Holt

A survey of Barry Le Va’s floor-based installations is currenlt on view at Dia Beacon, located in Beacon, NY. Though seemingly random—and emblematic of chance-based operations—these radical works are rigorously planned and arranged for each site-dependent installation.

“In my work I’m really interested in understanding my position in relation to larger structures of control and power — sometimes the law, government institutions, or private corporations. I’m often looking for how to renegotiate and come to learn new ways of relating and communicating with those institutions.“ —Jill Magid

I blur things to make all the parts a closer fit. Perhaps I also blur out the excess of unimportant information.“ —Gerhard Richter

We kindly remind those visiting Spiral Jetty this holiday weekend to please leave the work and the natural environment exactly as you found it. There are no facilities at the site and visitors must “leave no trace”. Please do not take existing rocks from the artwork, make fit pits, or trample vegetation. Carry out any waste with you.

We rely on your help to preserve the artwork for all of us now and for future generations.

Inaugurated in 1995, Dia’s series of Artist Web Projects is the longest-running program of this kind in the United States, commissioning artists to create original projects for the internet. Today we are featuring Susan Hiller’s “Dream Screens.” In this project, created especially for Dia's website, Hiller mapped her long-standing interest in dream states onto the nebulous realm of the web using interactive colorfields and a soundtrack in six languages.

“What I realized was, at least in my own terms, history is what happens behind your back when you’re not looking. You set in motion a chain of events and you try to follow them to their conclusion, wherever they take you. Sometimes it’s something really interesting. Sometimes it’s nothing. You don’t know until you take the trip.” —Mel Bochner
