Abstract :
Donald Judd's indication that there was more at work in the production of his precision-made sculptural objects than was obvious at first glance, prompted his friend Robert Smithson's phenomenological and Freudian interpretations of his work, which considered the place of Judd's ego in his Minimalist sculpture, and the roles played by anxiety and melancholy in both the fabrication and spectatorship of the work. Suggests that Judd's irritation with Smithson's articles about his work (Judd had badges inscribed 'Robert Smithson is not my spokesman'), which led to the breakup of the friendship and contributed to the dispersal of the Minimalist circle, was because Smithson came too close to revealing Judd's psychical life. ;
