I never got to meet Nancy Holt but her artwork Up and Under have had a great influence on my thoughts during last years. This short text is also respond to the article recently published in LA Times by David Colker. The article mentiones that with Up and Under, there has been silence. I hope the thoughts may also inspire a discussions considering the public art conservation in general. What happens to an public artwork when it´s ready?
