Feature Friday: “Epileptic Seizure Comparison” (1976)

“Epileptic Seizure Comparison,” installation view (date unknown)

I saw this at the Whitney Millennial Biennial in 2000. It’s still one of the wildest things I’ve seen, and it’s useful to have artworks that define certain outer limits of the form—stuff where when you see it you think, “Huh. It would be harder to push past this.”

Someday I would like to help organize a Paul Sharits retrospective.
