“So raise a glass to teenage girls for their linguistic innovation. It expands our expressive vocabulary, giving us new words and modes of expression. Speakers may nostalgically look to a previous golden era of English, but the truth is that Shakespeare’s English is an abomination of Chaucer’s English, which is an abomination of Beowolf’s. Language is inherently unstable. It’s in a constant state of flux, made and remade—stretched, altered, broken down and rearranged—by its speakers every day. Rather than a sign of corruption and disorder, this is language in its full vitality—a living, evolving organism.”

Ken Unsworth, Five secular settings for sculpture as ritual and burial piece, 1975

'In the final 'burial piece' Unsworth's body, standing inside a glass box, was slowly covered with sand while his heartbeat was monitored and amplified. The audience listened while he was fully covered, until the dramatic conclusion when an assistant smashed the glass box with a sledge-hammer and the sand poured out onto the ground. Unlike his other settings, this was not so much a formal sculptural pose but an action sequence and one that was set up to be theatrical in its effect.

We, Linda Montano and Teheching Hsieh, plan to do a one year performance.
We will stay together for one year and never be alone. We will be in the same room at the same time, when we are inside. We will be tied together at waist with an 8 ft rope. We will never touch each other during the year.
The performance will begin on July 4, 1983 at 6 P.M. and continue until July 4, 1984 at 6 P.M.

Cape Cod, Massachusetts
On July 9, 1975, conceptual artist Bas Jan Ader set sail from Massachusetts in the Ocean Wave — a single occupancy sailing vessel — toward his birthplace in Holland, as part of a durational performance entitled “In Search of the Miraculous.” Remnants of the Ocean Wave were recovered off the shore of Ireland, but the artist was never found.
