MONO LAKE REVISITED
In 1968 Robert Smithson visited Mono Lake in California together with Nancy Holt and Michael Heizer.
After their return Heizer and Smithson choose the music and made the soundtrack for the film.
In 2004 Nancy Holt made a film based on the existing material from that summer day with Smithson and Heizer. Her film was entitled Mono Lake, and first shown at "Robert Smithson Retrospective" at the museum of Conetemporary Art in Los Angeles.
In April 2013 I went back to Mono Lake to finish the film the way I imagine Robert Smithson would have made it and like Nancy Holt, I made use of the original material, but mixed it with my own recordings.
Assistant Director & Scriptwriter : Christian Wodstrup Christiansen
Orginal material by Robert Smithson, Michael Heizer and Nancy Holt.
