Watch artist Bruce Nauman talk about his piece Poke in the Eye/Nose/Ear
Nauman mentions that this video piece was originally shown as a projection at a different scale in a museum or gallery setting. He also talks about other elements and principles or art present in it. Imagine this video piece being projected in your living room wall, occupying an area of 3 ft x 5 ft at least. How do you imagine the scale changing the impact of the work? (I encourage to view this video enlarged in a projector at home if you own one.)
For this weekly writing, name the elements of art present in Poke in the Eye/Nose/Ear and discuss how they make the piece successful at generating a response from you – the viewer.
