Dan Graham’s Fish Pond/Swimming Pool reveals his fascination with reflection and perception. His plans for a partitioned fish pond-cum-swimming pool illustrate a bi-species participatory art experience, as both fish and humans move within the same environment. Guided by an interest in perspective, Dan Graham creates works that explore the activities of voyeurism and spectatorship through the artistic medium of architecture.

This is a large white paper shopping bag with a text work from March 31, 1966.

Dan Graham signed 29 copies for Art Metropole, apparently he also signed a limited number for different institutions. Nevertheless it is remarkable that this 1960’s text has been authorized again by his hand written signature on this small edition. Conceptual art created space for gigantic encompassing ideas compressed into a little text. Here a characteristic example of Conceptual art zooms in from macro to micro.
