Green River, Utah: Ratio - A Pile of Big Blocks

"Ratio" is high-concept art in the form of a 44-foot-high pile of giant concrete cubes. The old blind man who paid for it said he wanted to have a hand in creating something immortal.

Airport Rd, Green River, UT
West edge of the city. Visible on the north side of I-70. If you want to drive to the sculpture (four-wheel drive highly recommended) take exit 160. Drive northeast on Hwy 19 for 1.5 miles. Turn right at the green Food Store sign onto Broadway. Drive two blocks. Bear left onto Green River Ave., paralleling the train tracks on the right. Drive a quarter-mile. Turn right onto Airport Rd and cross the train tracks. Immediately after crossing the tracks, turn right onto the dirt road and drive along the train tracks. You'll see the sculpture ahead on the left. Drive about a half-mile, then follow the dirt road as it veers left to the sculpture.

Try to catch this on a day it isn't raining and you don't need a four-wheel drive vehicle. I took my Jetta up there with no problems. It would be a little hard to find if you didn't have Roadside America.

We brought our Subaru Forrester up to Ratio, and there were no problems. It was a nice sunny day.

This is not just a random stack of blocks, it is arranged in a Fibonacci Sequence! A mathematical sequence of numbers: 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, ... The next number is found by adding up the two numbers before it. Great for sciency folks -- impress your friends.

You can see the blocks from I-70 as you pass the town.

Having grown up in Utah, it sure looks like a Latter Day Saint Temple to me. Temples are usually white with a golden Moroni statue on top. Maybe there's no correlation at all, but it's absolutely the first thing I thought of when I saw "Ratio."
