«Narrated by Graham, this tape documents the formats and concepts of a series of projects made by the artist for the EA-Generali Foundation in Vienna. Encompassing the artist's performance, video and architectural works, these projects all investigate perceptions of architectural space and time. Graham re-enacts his 1975 piece Performance/Audience/Mirror, in which the audience participates as the subject of the work, breaking down traditional roles of spectator and performer, subject and object. In Opposing Mirrors and Monitors on Time Delay and Two Viewing Rooms, Graham combines architectural perspective and video time, exploring the relationship between them. The three constructions Triangle with Circular Inserts, Children's Pavilion and Star of Daviduse reflective materials to alter the viewer's apprehension of space. Lastly, Graham's New Design For Showing Video, built specifically for the EA-Generali gallery out of glass, two-way mirrors and punched aluminum, provides a comfortable viewing area while also accentuating the environment in which the viewing takes place.» www.eai.org
