Vito Acconci, Seedbed, 1972

In this piece, Acconci sat underneath the gallery floorboards and masturbated while making erotic noises into a microphone that were then broadcasted through speakers into the gallery space as patrons walked on the floor above him. There’s more I could say about this piece, but I’ll just let y’all reflect on that for a bit.
