Initally a poet, Acconci became involved with the New York Conceptual art scene in the late 1960s. His writing began to take the form of instructions or descriptions for activities which the artist would then perform. He would, for example, wander down a street, choose people at random and follow them (Following Piece 1969)- or perform basic activities repetitively, such as attempting to catch a ball while blindfolded (Adaption Study - Blindfolded Catching, 1970).
