Anxious automation [videorecording] / Richard Serra & Joan Jonas. [1971]

Jonas performs a series of simple actions in this didactic exercise on spatial distance and rhythm. The piece combines footage from two cameras zooming in and out of the performance at different speeds, while Philip Glass taps off-beat on a microphone, creating a disjunction between time and space, audio and video.
