Double Negative mystifying Nevada

Travel to Nevada reveals the Double Negative by Michael Heizer on land out in Moapa Valley on Mormon Mesa near Overton Nevada which was completed in 1970 off Elgin Road. These colorful yet stark and eerie rocks with holes ,dips and valleys are unique and interesting to explore while visiting Las Vegas and Lake Meade area and offer a fun place to hike if you bring plenty of water and your imagination.The long trenches 30 feet wide and 50 feet deep and 1500 ft long in 2 trenches straddled on either side of a natural canyon into which the excavated material was dumped gives way to the negative whereby both the natural and man made negative space occurs. The work consists of what is not there, what has been displaced
