Outside the Grounds of Obscenity and Inside the Grounds of Hyde Park

Media Installation
3 days

A closed-circuit video (CCTV) performance installation (May 16th - 18th) commissioned for The Video Show at the Serpentine Gallery, Hyde Park, London, May 1975. A prepared videotape of 42-minutes duration, recording the scene through the gallery windows, is progressively edited following a predetermined schema, with inserts of the same scene recorded at later periods in the performance. (Catalogue page, audience notes and documentation photos top left. An analysis of the final tape is currently in progress to determine how the installation performance developed over the three days.)
