75 Reasons to Live: Bill Fontana on Dan Graham

Bill Fontana is a composer and sound artist. SFMOMA has commissioned what will be a truly fantastic new site-specific installation by the artist, opening this month.  Bill talks here about his appreciation for the sound qualities of Dan Graham’s 1994 sculpture Double Cylinder (The Kiss).  I remember that after his talk, one listener suggested that the  disorienting visual and acoustic properties inside the sculpture were as dizzying as a fabulous first kiss. We all agreed. More Dan Graham.
