Robert Smithson, Glue Pour (1969)

Glue Pour was created for the exhibition 995,000, curated by Lucy Lippard for Vancouver Art Gallery. In December 1969 Smithson positioned a large drum of glue, industrially produced by National Starch and Chemical Company, at the crest of a hill and tipped the container over. This image was taken immediately after the pour began. The temporary sculpture exists as a 126 format transparency.
