East–West/ West–East is a sculpture composed by four major steel structures, more than fourteen meters high each, forming a straight line through the desert, exceeding one km, which is completely according to the land topography.

Richard Serra succeeded in raising the public art to another dimension, shaped and interpreted the desert landscape, in a contemporary view but at the same time in a timeless way, trying to reach the land art.
