New Monuments

The image of entropy

Richard Kostelanetz, in an article on "Inferential Arts," quotes Robert Smithson's Entropy and the New Monuments as saying of recent towering sculptures of basic shapes that they are "not built for the ages but rather against the ages" and "have provided a visible analogue for the Second Law of Thermodynamics". Surely the popular use of the notion of entropy has changed. If during the last century it served to diagnose, explain, and deplore the degradation of culture, it now provides a positive rationale for "minimal" art and the pleasures of chaos.
