'Blinks', 1969

‘Blinks’ (1969), by Vito Acconci

Acconci set himself the task of walking a continuous line down a street, holding a camera aimed away from him, ready to shoot. He tried not to blink. Each time he did, he snapped a photo.

‘Les Grands Ensembles’, by Pierre Huyghe

This video shows the reconstruction of an urban landscape in the late 1970s. In constant twilight, two towers converse in a strange code through the light from their windows, produced by the winking of television monitors.

Sorry about the quality, but be sure to watch through the end of the video.
