The article is a review of McCaffery's video "V beyond Ideo" and performance of "A Book Resembling Hair" at New Langton Arts; San Francisco, January 10, 1986. LaPaima comments, "McCaffery's works [are] focused around issues of disparity (and/or congruence) between speech and action, ("the split between language and body") and emphasized conflicting layers of interpretation and signage 'in order to bring out the fascistic implications in all semiotic practice."
