Machtesh Ramon Cross

Sculpture and photograph, Mitzpe Ramon, Israel, 2006

At the edge of the town of Mitzpe Ramon in the Negev Desert in Israel lies the Ramon Crater. A platform overlooks that crater from which visitors can watch the spectacular view. But below the platform are all sorts of strange objects thrown off the edge of the cliff. I collected this rubbish to make a huge red cross inside the crater.

A monumental photograph depicts the landscape of the Ramon Crater with the red cross.
