Blue/Around, 1985, Installation in artist's studio
at P.S.1, Queens, NY.
Cobalt-stained wood disk with 2 speakers, rope, wench, 24 speakers,
Visitors stand in middle of large wood blue disk and hear
word "Blue" repeated in Cundiff's voice. Facing toward
the blue disk are 24 circularly mounted speakers. From them the
word "Around" is spoken by Hardesty. This word, "a-round"
actually circulates around the speakers at 30 RPM . This is done
via an artist-made machine (bottom pic at left).
