Art/Life One Year Performance 1983-1984 (Rope Piece) 

In this performance, Tehching Hsieh and Linda Montano spent one year between 4 July 1983 and 4 July 1984 tied to each other with an 8-foot-long (2.4 m) rope. They had to stay in the same room and were not allowed to touch each other until the end of the one-year period.

 

Both of them shaved their hair in the beginning of the year, and the performance was witnessed by Pauline Oliveros and Paul Grassfield.
