robert smithson "ithaca mirror trail", ithaca, new york 1969

Robert Smithson is one of the most important representative of Land Art.
I saw these pictures on the inside of Tate Modern Gallery, London. This work is part of a section reserved to those author who usally work whit "series".

Smithson carried a mirror northwards to the Cayuga Salt Works. At eight locations, marked on the map with Letraset letters, he placed the mirror in the landscape and photographed it. The images in the mirror were not intended to record the sites themselves but, rather, to show nature reflected back at itself.
