Commissioned by the Wexner Center in 1990 for one of its inaugural exhibitions, Gretchen Bender’s Aggressive Witness–Active Participant turns the pulsating cycle of nonstop American television into theatrical spectacle.

Consisting of eight domestic television sets (pre–flat screen era) interspersed with four computer monitors, Bender’s piece was one in a series of remarkably confrontational works taking live television imagery and abstract computer graphics as source material.
