Final Burial at Chinati

I have intentionally not revealed anything about the objects that were buried at each earthwork, preferring to keep silent on the issue. I planned one object for each space hoping they would reveal themselves as to which one would be buried where. One did not feel right the night before and the thought kept nagging at me as I was digging the hole. After the photo shoot, I unearthed it and brought it to Marfa and buried it near this location with only these two photographs to show. Nancy filmed a video which will be included with the series later. This was the hardest one - the object I was least willing to let go but now that they are all gone, there is relief in knowing that I left them all in a very memorable place.
