Vito Acconci was a world renown landscape architect, designer, performance and installation artist. He came to fame in the 1970s and left a mark on the art world for his unsettling performances and installation work. Oogie students were given an interesting and unexpected presentation of his work, including architectural renderings, video clips, and his overall philosophy throughout his life as an artist. Vito stated that he loved architecture because it always has renovation built into it. Students left inspired with a different view of landscape architecture and performance/installation art.
