ALLVISION, 1976 by Steina


ALLVISION incorporates and transforms physical space through video. In this installation, Steina transfigures the viewer’s orientation: a constructed physical space is engaged in conversation with the perceptual systems of the human eye and the camera lens.
ALLVISION poses questions about the process of transcribing all-encompassing space and the ways in which perception can be altered or exaggerated by a mechanical interface.The machine allows a view of what would otherwise be impossible to perceive; it privileges vision to experience the implausible and fantastic.
