The artist stalks and serenades Joe Dimaggio in her car as he strolls the docks, unaware that McGuire is secretly videotaping his every step.

“McGuire’s use of her camera as a conduit for shared experience [is] at the heart of the piece that first brought her to a wider audience, Joe DiMaggio 1,2,3, a video in three parts about a chance encounter. Sitting in her parked car in San Francisco’s Marina, McGuire’s camera was running when elderly baseball legend Joe DiMaggio unexpectedly walked into the shot. In the tape, she follows him, continuing to shoot, and begins making up songs about her feelings for him as she drives.”

—Nicole Armour, “Alternate States,” Film Comment (July/August 2000)
