Land  Art,  sometimes  referred  to  as  Earth  Art  or  Earthworks,  is  a  form  of  art  which  involves  using  physical landscapes to create art, taking art out of the museum and into the outside world. Modern Land Art movement really got going in the 1960s, when  American artists began creating  Land  Art on a large scale.  Today ,  works of modern  Land  Art can be seen all over the world, sometimes right alongside  much older pieces of  Land  Art created by people  who lived thousands of years ago. 

  Land  Art,  which  is  not  necessarily  unchangeable,  can  take  a  number  of  forms.  For  example,  in  1970,  Robert Smithson created the Spiral Jetty (螺旋状防波堤) , made of a collection of stones and mud, in the Great Salt Lake. The American artist made a large jetty in a spiral shape which sticks out into the waters of the lake. 

  Reshaping the landscape is a common characteristic of  Land  Art,  which can be created by  moving parts around. 

People  can  also  add things to the  environment to create  Land  Art, like  salt,  which is  added to the  Spiral  Jetty. It is possible to use plants. In all cases, Land Art is immovable.  

Land Art is designed to gradually form, change, and eventually decay(衰落) . That’ s one of the biggest differences between Land Art and most of the art one sees in the museums. Some works of art can exist only for a few hours or days. 

Others are exposed to rain and wind so that they develop and decay over time, which is part of the attractiveness in the eyes of the artists.
