One Way

1979, 7:54 min, b&w, sound

One Way is a classic of perceptual video, a droll yet visceral exercise that pushes the dynamic of physicality to its most outrageous extreme. The camera becomes a virtual extension of Byrne's arm as he literally and forcefully confronts objects in his environment with the equipment. To startling and often comic effect, Byrne's seemingly self-propelled camera scrapes, digs, probes and careens against trees, signs, sidewalk, and fences — all tactilely experienced by the viewer from the point-of-view of the assertive camera. The camera itself assumes an animated physical presence in this dramatic phenomenological exercise, which demolishes the preciousness of the equipment and introduces landscape and body-based movement to Byrne's work.
