John Baldessari, Dan Graham

Throwing a Ball Once to Get Three Melodies and Fifteen Chords

description

Artist's book comprised of photographs, by Dan Graham, of John Baldessari in full body profile throwing a ball in flip-book style. The wind-up and pitch are set off by horizontal lines marking, like sheet music, the movement. In turn the images were also used to create the installation that was exhibited in conjunction with the publication of the book.
