“The bookcase that I had painted and used in the opening scene of Wavelength was still in the studio in 1970, but it had become filled with a great variety of objects that were related to my work. I shot a 35mm slide of it and then, seated in front of the bookcase where the camera had been, made an audiotape recording of my voice. I discussed everything I could think of relative to each of the objects in the bookcase. Before recording, I decided on the categories of my description and also, roughly, on the physical path (around the bookcase) that my description would take.” M.S.
