‘During the early seventies I conceived a way to break the omnipotent stranglehold of the airwaves that broadcast television held’. ‘The solution was simply to purchase commercial advertising time and have the stations play my tapes along with their other commercials’. Chris Burden
The commercials that aired during this period include ‘Through the Night Softly’, ‘Poem for L.A.’, ‘Chris Burden Promo’ and ‘Full Financial Disclosure’.
