Colin Campbell, 'Peripheral Blur'

by Martha Fleming

Artforum, Jan. 1981, v. 19, no. 5, pp. 78-79

In light of video art's accepted and implicit reference to television, and the examination of performance in relation to theatre, Colin Campbell's performance Peripheral Blur is seen as a significant development in both mediums. His careful use of theatre is exemplified in the resonance of the actual in the projected and of the person in the persona.
