vito acconci
(3 Flags for 1 Space and 6 Regions, 1979-1981)

im working on a paper for an art history course about the work above by vito acconci, an american artist who works in a variety of media including video art, installation, performance art and printmaking. i tend to always have a difficult time writing these 'visual analysis' papers because i find myself becoming more intrigued with the artists life and covert meanings behind the piece than i am with the aspects of the work i am supposed to be analyzing.
