Recording of a lecture by Terry Wilfong of the Kelsey Museum of Archaeology and myself discussing the varieties of sonic experience in museums, and the possibility of sounds becomimg collectable museum objects.
“The fundamental basis of my work, to which I have dedicated my life, manifests itself in a process of recording a progression that both documents time and also defines it. It began on a single date in 1965, the one on which I undertook my first ‘Detail’. Each ‘Detail’ is a part of a greater idea conceived on that date. My work records the progression to infinity, through the first and the last number painted on the canvas.”
“Marking Infinity presents the work of artist-philosopher Lee Ufan, charting his creation of a visual, conceptual, and theoretical terrain that has radically expanded the possibilities for painting and sculpture since the 1960s. Lee is acclaimed for an innovative body of work that revolves around the notion of encounter—seeing the bare existence of what is actually before us and focusing on ‘the world as it is.’”
