32-year-old performance artist Vito Acconci starts his performance series 'Seedbed' in Sonnabend Gallery, 420 W. Broadway, Soho, New York, New York, United States.

In the gallery there was a low wooden ramp merging with the floor. The ramp extended across the width of the room, beginning two feet up the side of one wall and slanting down to the middle of the floor. Acconci lay hidden underneath the ramp, masturbating. The artist's spoken fantasies about the visitors walking above him were heard through loudspeakers in the gallery. The performance lasted until 29 January.
