“Walk in the street trying not to blink. Each time you blink, snap a photo.” Vito Acconci put down these famous instructions which were the basis of a series “Blink” which characterizes many methods as well as philosophies on the famous Conceptualist photography movement. This movement is known to have started in 1960s.
With the help of his ordinary camera, Acconci slowly deconstructs this notion while at the same time, suggesting that such an open shutter is smart enough to replace closed eyes. This program moves ahead and uses the works of several other artists along with Acconci, who had successfully made use of technical skills and humor to make their statements.
This DVD moves ahead to discuss ‘Monuments of Passaic’ and also the famous “Self Portrait as a Fountain,” It showcases the famous installations by Joseph Kosuth’s which played relationships that existed between the photos of reality and relationships.
