Construction of a Cube
Video recorded at the Auckland Art Gallery 1975-76.
"This work has to do with (plays on) the reductionist premises of minimalist sculpture. The title refers to the Constructivist roots of minimalism and also a sort of naming convention, (Naum Gabo for example), as well as the fact that instead of the object, or post facto evidence of it's construction, the process of making the object is presented. The changes in the sound of the repetitive hammer blows betray some emotion (expression of impatience/ boredom perhaps?)"
The cube later became the confining space for "Getting to Know You".
