Dennis and Erik Oppenheim, 1971

A Feed-back Situation
“I originate movement which Erik translates and returns to me. What I get in return is my movement fed through his sensory system.”
2-State Transfer Drawing Dennis to Erik Oppenheim
“As I run a marker along Erik’s back he attempts to duplicate the movement on the wall. My activity stimulates a kinetic response from his sensory system. I am, therefore, drawing through him…Because Erik is my offspring and we share similar biological ingredients, his back (as surface) can be seen as an immature version of my own. In a sense, I make contact with a past state.”
