Dick Higgins, Steina Vasulka, Vito Acconci, Cap’n Jazz

:-$ The money where the mouth is, the mouth moves currently and currentially. Brakhage was high school besties with Tenney was married to Carolee and Dick and Alison, well, you know, sometimes we forget when we’re thinking about history and art history maybe in particular (using small a and small h) that the x-ists and the y-ists (and 4-ists and even the *est-ists), well, a lot more of them knew each other than we think. Histories are not just discrete ideologies bumping up and rubble-bubbing against each other and then one wins and the other fades away. All those thousand terraces overlapping and understanding. I don’t need a reason.
