" Another concern of single-channel, single monitor/
image video is the perception on the screen of scale and
physical objects, exemplified in the work of John Baldes-
sari, and the cognition of chemical and physical change
through time, a preoccupation of Terry Fox. Allan Kaprow
explores time and objectivity by recording perceptible,
measurable tasks, while Alan Sondheim observes, records,
and comments on the micro-environment. These artists
raise questions of documentation, real time, and real space
by directly investigating the phenomenology of particular
phenomena. "
