All fifteen concrete works by Donald Judd cast and  assembled  on-site in  Marfa, Texas between 1980 through 1984. Each measures 2.5 x  2.5 x 5   meters.

Shade is short and miles away, tucked between the Chinati mountains and the Mexican border.
In the low, lonely horizontal blue desert plain of the Chihuahuan.
As day dims, light is long.
Bowing towards the horizon, the retiring sun sets the sky ablaze and the desert aglow.
A weightless, soft sensual glow : purple mountain silhouettes, capacious sky, undulating glass, amber cactus and concrete.
Light and dark, land and sky and blue and melt.
The cool, quiet haze of dark generously gives way to starry desert night dreams.
