Dan Graham | Roll, Filming Process (1970)

Dan Graham is one of my favourite artists - his ‘Works and Collected Writings’ must be one of my best purchases. This interview with Pietro Valle from 2002 is a must read.

'I'm interested in inter-subjectivity, exploring how a person, in a precise and given moment, perceives him/herself while at the same time watching other people who in turn are watching him/her. When I was fourteen, I read Jean Paul Sartre's book Being and Nothingness and I realized how, when we are young, we develop the notion of Ego the moment we feel that someone is watching us. As a young man, for a short period of time I was the manager of the John Daniels art gallery where, at the beginning of the Sixties, I exhibited some of the early experimental works of Minimalism. The general opinion about that from of art at that time was that it was based on objective relations and therefore, to contrast that idea, I decided that my productions would highlight the spectator's subjective point of view. On top of that, I was interested in the relation between group perception and the perception of the individual spectator, the one who had time to ponder.' - Dan Graham

"We loved the idea of the piece being born on Oct. 1 and that it will never again be maintained. If someone spray-paints graffiti or a cowboy decides to use it as target practice or maybe a mouse or a muskrat makes a home in it, 50 years from now it will be a ruin that is a reflection of the time it was made." - Yvonne Villareal
