10. 1980 In the Window/Out the Window LA
Two parallel Closed-circuit systems were installed inside the front window, and directly outside the window on the sidewalk. Artists interviewed each other about their work for 15 minutes each. They faced the monitor in front of them that displayed the image of the other. Although I made it clear that this was a closed-circuit installation and was not being broadcast, the power of the TV held their gaze, brought them into a mediated space where their communication became more intense than without it. Only once did an artist turn around, and tap on the window and want to talk directly through the glass.
