    “My early work nearly ruined my career,” Vito told Harris by email, “and also nearly killed me,” he told later him in person. “What does a body artist do as a body grows old? It seemed necessary to find a new direction.”
    In the mid-1970s, Acconci stopped doing performances, and turned to architecture, to which he’s been committed ever since.
