3 video reels : sd., col. ; 1/2 in. ; 1 hr., 35 min., 51 sec.
Exhibited at the Artists' Videotape Performances exhibition. From the original program: "Topesthesia II is a television environment consisting of one monitor at either end of the room, and one in the center. Three tapes are played simultaneously through a random sequential switcher which makes the images interchange from one monitor to another. the image on the monitor is a close-up of human eyes reacting to light change speeded up by means of time lapsing. The sound track is the sound of birds in an aviary."
