Titles with or about Vito Acconci

Digging Piece

1970, 10 min, color, silent, Super 8mm film on video

Standing alone among beach dunes, Acconci begins to kick at the sand below him. Over the course of the film's ten minutes, this repeated action displaces sand at a steady rate: as the artist sinks lower into the hole he creates, the mound of sand before him grows in correspondence.
