Lygia Clark, Dialogue: Goggles, (1968)
In keeping with her experimentation with therelationship between the artist, the artwork and the audience/participant, Clark fabricated a pair of goggles that restrict the visual field of the participants and force an eye-to-eye exchange through a series of mirrors that distort their vision. In this piece, Clark merges concrete examples of performance, interactivity and dialogism. For Clark, the object becomes “a mere vehicle for bodily experience and exists only in relation to the body that holds (or interacts) with it.”
