- NAUMAN Bruce, Walking in an Exaggerated Manner Around the Perimeters of a Square, 1967/68. 16 mm. Film, 9 mns. b/w. Silent. 1967-68, 10 min, b&w, silent, 16 mm film

In this silent film, Nauman walks around the perimeter of a large square marked off with masking tape. He shifts his hips exaggeratedly as he places one foot in front of the other, moving carefully around the square. On the back wall of the studio there is a small, tilted mirror in which his actions sometimes are visible as well. Nauman claims the function of the mirror was to expose that which might otherwise be concealed from the viewer.
