Vito Acconci started out as a poet at the New York School and later moved towards performance, sound and video as his main forms of media. His early works were marked as very controversial as he defined boundaries between spaces and people, between performer and spectators. Acconci started out using his body as the medium for his films to convey power, intimacy, and trust to the viewer; subsequently he dealt with interpersonal transactions and the cultural and political implications of the performative space he setup for the camera.
