This tape is part of a larger work entitled Southwestern Landscapes, a series exploring the landscape surrounding the Vasulkas’ New Mexico home, manipulating space and time through various recording methods. Experimenting with a video camera, microphone and mirrored ball, this dizzying tape demonstrates Steina’s use of video as a direct experience, the camera acting not only as a surrogate eye, but an “independent” body (and mind), occupying space in the world.
