All of these show the The  Kiln   If  you  will  pay  me  for  my  song,  O  poFers,   Then  come,  Athena,  and  hold  thy  hand  above  the  kiln!   May  the  kotyloi  and  all  the  kanastra  turn  a  good  black,   May  they  be  well  fired  and  fetch  the  price  asked,   Many  being  sold  in  the  marketplace  and  many  on  the  roads,   And  bring  in  much  money,  and  may  my  song  be  pleasing.   But  if  you  (poFers)  turn  shameless  and  deceihul,   Then  do  I  summon  the  ravagers  of  kilns,   Both  Syntrips  (Smasher)  and  Smaragos  (Crasher)  and              Asbetos  (Unquenchable)  too,  and  Sabaktes  (Shake-­‐to-­‐Pieces)   And  Omodamos  (Conqueror  of  the  Unbaked),  who  makes              much  trouble  for  this  craj.   Stamp  on  stoking  tunnel  and  chambers,  and  may  the  whole  kiln   Be  thrown  into  confusing,  while  the  poFers  loudly  wail.   As  grinds  a  horse’s  jaw  so  may  the  kiln  grind   To  powder  all  the  pots  within  it.   [Come,  too,  daughter  of  the  Sun,  Circe  of  many  spells,   Cast  cruel  spells,  do  evil  to  them  and  their  handiwork.   Here  too  let  Cheiron  lead  many  Centaurs,   Both  those  that  escaped  the  hands  of  Herakles  and  those  that  perished.   May  they  his  these  pots  hard,  and  may  the  kiln  collapse.   And  may  the  poFers  wail  as  they  see  the  mischief.   But  I  shall  rejoiced  at  the  sight  of  their  luckless  craj.]   And  if  anyone  bends  over  to  look  into  the  spy-­‐hole,  may  his  whole  face     Be  scorched,  so  that  all  may  learn  to  deal  justly.

  11.  Danny  Katz:  "Arrogant  posiAon  that  art  jusAfies  interference  with  the

     simple   joys  of  human  acAvity  in  the  plaza.    This  is  not  a  great  plaza  by  internaAonal   standards,  but  a  small  refuge  and  place  of  revival  for  people  who  ride  to  work   in  steel  containers,  work  in  sealed  rooms  (with  no  windows)  and  breathe   recirculated  air  all  day.  Is  the  purpose  of  art  to  stress  the  absence  of  joy  and   hope?  I  can't  believe  this  was  the  arAsAc  intenAon,  yet  sadly  this  has  been  the   dominant  effect  of  the  work  (It  is  arguable  that  "stressing  the  absence  of  joy   and  hope"  was  part  of  Serra's  purpose,  as  interpreted  by  Horowitz  )...I  can   accept  anything  in  art,  but  I  can't  accept  physical  assault  and  complete   destrucAon  of  ordinary  human  acAvity...no  work  of  art  created  with  a   contempt  of  ordinary  humanity  and  w/o  respect  for  the  common  element  of   human  experience  can  be  great...I  suggest  Mr.  Serra  take  advantage  of  this   opportunity  to  walk  away  from  this  fiasco  and  move  the  work  to  a  place  where   it  will  beFer  reveal  its  beauty.”   Richard  Serra,  Tilted  Arc,  Federal  Plaza,  New  York  City,  1981.
