WALTER De MARIA 1935-2013

The first time I saw The Broken Kilometer by Walter De Maria who died last week, was around 25 years ago. I knew not what to make of it other than as an oddity called "art."

Each time I've seen it since, I've taken greater pleasure and appreciation from it. I also came to love it's hidden-in-plain-sight existence among Soho storefronts. Most days, thousands of sidewalk shoppers pass it by, with no idea of what's behind the door at 393 West Broadway. Unlike most things, I imagine that may never change.
