  • In 1978, after the suicide of Kenneth Fletcher, Wong placed himself inside an 8' by 8' padded cube with a video camera looking through a hole in each wall, and from directly overhead. The audience watched on five monitors from outside the cube as Wong flung himself against the walls to the music of the Sex Pistols and Patti Smith.
    This single channel video is edited from over five hours of raw footage. The frustration, tension, endurance and later comradery of his friends, as viewers jumped into the cube, is explored in this early work of Canadian video art.
