“Artists talk a lot about freedom. So, recalling the expression “free as a bird,” Morton Feldman went to a park one day and spent some time watching our feathered friends. When he came back, he said, “You know? They’re not free: they’re fighting over bits of food.””

Bruce Nauman, ‘Dance or Exercise on the Perimeter of a Square (Square Dance)’, 1965 “ For his film Dance or Exercise on the Perimeter of a Square, Bruce Nauman made a square with masking tape on the studio floor and marked the mid-point of each side. He then filmed himself as he stepped systematically around the perimeter of the square to the beat of a metronome, allowing the shape to guide his movements a half segment at a time.
The work is one of four Studio Films Nauman created during the winter of 1967–68, another of which includes Walking in an Exaggerated Manner Around the Perimeter of a Square. In each of these films, Nauman used his body to explore movement, space, and the camera’s view in a variety of predetermined actions performed in the confines of his studio. Each film is approximately ten minutes long, the duration of one 16 mm reel of film. ”→
