Earth Measure – rain and limestone dust

Took a moment to go visit with Matt Weir today as he worked on Earth Measure. Monumental works or art are also monumental amounts of work. Sculpture is subtractive in the sense that before there can be more there needs to be less. Matt and his helper (sorry I forgot his name) were using tools that kicked up massive amounts of limestone dust today. I was there just as it started to rain. In the process I found out that limestone dust and rain have a very distinctive smell. Quite nice really. Here are two photos I grabbed in the process.
