Steam, from "Earth Projects, A Suite of 10 Prints"

Robert Morris

This print is one of a series of ten works in a portfolio titled, "Earth Projects." They were pulled in the Detroit Workshop at the Common Ground of the Arts in Detroit during the summer and fall of 1969. Robert Morris stated, "They are organized around certain phenomena that can best be experienced outside... dust storms, earthquakes, plowed fields, sudden changes of temperature, Indian mounds, concrete dams, formal gardens, steam rising from city streets, natural disasters and aftermath, suburban hedges and gravel paths, burning industrial wastes storage dumps of vast quantities of materials...most of the projects would, if built, be of such a scale that the whole of the work could not be seen. This would allow the body [to explore the work] through walking rather than through an instantaneous visual impression." The immense scale of these projects often meant that the work’s overall structure or shape would be visible to the spectator only from a distance, while the experience in greater proximity to the work would necessarily be only partial. In Steam, a project realized in Bellingham, Washington, a dematerialized white cloud that dissipates into the air was created by bringing steam from below the city to the surface via pipes, resulting in an ephemeral, constantly changing sculpture.
