I'm researching a project related to drawing in three dimensions and I
wonder if anyone can recommend contemporary or historical pieces related
to the theme of drawing and performance. This may include dancers with
lights in performances that create lines of light;artists that use
drawing to sculpt a space. (Picasso's flash light performance); and
performance artists that use rope and string in a way that references

I've spent the last several days at home recovering from food poisoning
and I've not been able to continue my research here in NYC so if anyone
can recommend specific taped performances or video databases on the net
I would greatly appreciate it.
