Synopsis by Brian Whitener
Performance artist Dan Graham's piece entitled Performer/Audience/Mirror is preserved in this video. Standing in front of the audience, at the head of the room with a mirror behind him, Graham speaks in stream of consciousness about the piece, art, and architecture. Most often his comments focus specifically on the piece at hand, what it feels like to be talking, and descriptions of his movements as he traverses the room. The piece has no pivotal point per se -- it is more about the relationship between Graham and his audience and their commitment to turning watching into seeing.
