This chapter focuses on ways in which the performance of early video art-music blurred the boundaries between art and life. Using the mirrored environments and surveillance videos of Joan Jonas, Bruce Nauman, Peter Campus and Dan Graham, it unpacks notions of immersion, participation and performativity to arrive at a theory of the nondiegetic image. Film music theory is used to produce a close analysis of Concerto for TV Cello (1971), a collaborative performance between Nam June Paik and Charlotte Moorman that encouraged reception strategies more akin to listening than viewing. This study leads to an exploration of the active dialogue now possible between audience, audiovisual work and exhibition / performance space.

Keywords:   Surveillance, mirrors, immersion, participation, Joan Jonas, Bruce Nauman, Charlotte Moorman, Nam June Paik, performance space, film music
