In Ten Sity: Paul Wong at the Vancouver Art Gallery Videospace

by C.K. Tomczak

Centerfold, Feb. 1979, v. 3, no. 3, p. 135

A brief but vivid description of Paul Wong's installation and performance at the Vancouver Art Gallery, involving the construction of an open-ceiling cube in the gallery space. Wong attached cameras to face the interior of the cube, and monitors upon the exterior, so the gallery audience could watch a performance wherein Wong, while inside the cube, spoke phrases regarding contemporary shamanism, and thrashed against the walls while the audience watched via the monitors on the exterior of the cube.
