The author of this article is unimpressed by the Festival. "As I strolled about the ship [...] it struck me that quite a few of the artists must have been chosen for their lack of inhibitions, a character trait that was not always accompanied by much creative talent." She is exhausted by the "sights and sounds and absurd goings on" and reveals a preference to old-fashioned "blipless museums" and conventional concert halls. She describes in some detail Nam June Paik's TV Bed and Shigeko Kubota's Video Birthday Party (60th) for John Cage.
