Item description for Bruce Nauman: Audio-Video Underground Chamber by Achim Hochd rfer...

Before spider holes made their media debut, there was Bruce Nauman's spectacular 1972-74 installation Audio-Video Underground Chamber. Its single concrete vault, with dimensions close to those of the human body, is buried--like a coffin--one and a half meters deep. Integrated into the space are a lamp, a camera and a microphone, which transmit image and sound to a gallery. The actual existence of the buried cabin is concretized only in the viewers' imagination by means of the live broadcast and two of Nauman's explanatory, blueprint drawings. Image and sound call up associations with the psychic and existential borderline areas around which Nauman's art often revolves, with feelings of isolation and claustrophobia, experiences of loss of communication and of orientation, and traumas such as that of being buried alive.

Reviews - What do customers think about Bruce Nauman: Audio-Video Underground Chamber?

I expected prictures, instead the book is 99% interviews  Feb 13, 2004
Bruce Nauman is the most amazing artist I have ever seen.
I was not much into moder art, until I saw Clown Torture and From Hand to Mouth at the Tate Modern in London.
Since then I am a looking for his work whetherever I can find it.

I felt a bit let down by this book because I expected reproductions of his work instead it is almost exclusively made up by interviews with him or short articles written by him. There might be 10 pages of reproduction in the whole book. Some of his neon work.

In particular there is no reproduction of Clown Torture in the whole book, inspite of the fact that the head of the clown is on the cover.

I think the book could be great if you are a scolar, or (for wathever reason) want to read what he says about his work, but it is not very good if you want to see reproductions.
