This tape is a "feedback" dialogue inspired by the installations and single-channel works in the 1994 exhibition Gary Hill: Sites Recited at the Long Beach Museum of Art. It includes early works such as War Zone (1980), Primarily Speaking (1983), Cut Pipe (1992), and Learning Curve (still point) (1993). Sites Recited traces the development of Hill's preoccupation with language and image and the spaces/events that exist between them. Excerpts from Site Cite, an unrehearsed performance by sound poets George Quasha and Charles Stein with Hill and Joan Jonas, are interspersed with several of Hill's single-channel works.
