Three Attention Studies

1969, 9 min, color, silent, Super 8mm film on video

In Looking Around Piece, the performer stands before a fixed camera, which records his eye and head movements as he follows a moving object outside the frame.

In Starting Piece, the performer starts too far away to be captured by the camera; as he walks down the hill, he gradually enters the frame.

In Catching Up, the performer and cameraman walk side by side across a field. Sometimes the performer falls as the camera continues its pace; the performer must make an effort to catch up and return into the frame.
