Bony’s installation 60 metros cuadrados y su información (60 Square Meters and Its Information) was first shown as part of Experiencias Visuales 1967 (Visual Experiences 1967), an exhibition at the Instituto Torcuato Di Tella, Buenos Aires. The work comprises a chain-link fence laid on the gallery floor and a film projector screening a detail of the fence on a freestanding wall. Visitors are encouraged to walk on the fencing. The act of doing so contrasts with watching the projected image, calling attention to the mediation of live experience through recording technologies, while the image on the screen evokes the feeling of being captive.
