Vito Hannibal Acconci (born January 24, 1940) is a Brooklyn-based architect, landscape architect, and installation artist. Acconci began his career as a poet. In the late 1960s, Acconci transformed himself into a performance and video artist using his own body as a subject for photography, film, video, and performance. His performance and video work was marked heavily by confrontation and Situationism. In the mid 1970s, Acconci expanded his metier into the world of audio/visual installations.
