Artist Gary Hill (born 1951) met Indigenous American Martin Cothren (1960–2016) from the Yakama Indian Reservation while looking for subjects for his 1996 piece Viewer. A fisherman by trade, Cothren also pursued illustration and beading, and the two men slowly developed an unlikely bond. Though they came from different backgrounds both culturally and creatively, Hill and Cothren forged a close connection and remained in one another’s lives for the next 20 years, until Cothren’s death. You Know Where I'm At and I Know Where You’re At is the culmination of their “friendship of otherness.” It traverses their ups and downs from paranoia and generosity to forgiveness and sorrow through drawings, handwritten letters and prose. The latest in Dis Voir’s Encounters series, this book continues the project’s goals of artistic and literary experimentation through collaboration.

Gary Hill is one of the most influential contemporary artists to investigate the myriad relationships between words and electronic images. His inquiries into linguistics and consciousness offer resonant philosophical and poetic insights, as he explores the formal conjunctions of electronic visual and audio elements with the body and the self. With experimental rigor, conceptual precision and imaginative leaps of discovery, Hill's work in video is about, and is, a new form of writing. In this substantial volume, George Quasha and Charles Stein analyze the artist's entire career, paying particular attention to the single-channel video works. Covering Hill's oeuvre, this highly readable monograph features a comprehensive chronology of his work, including important production details. A careful selection of key writings by the artist is also included. With 640 pages and more than 900 illustrations, it is the most comprehensive and in-depth treatment of Gary Hill's work to date, written in close connection with the artist, and offers an essential theoretical and scholarly frame for continuing study.
Published by Further/Art. Essay by George Quasha. Foreword by Tim Close. Introduction by Sandy Harthorn.
For over two decades Gary Hill's work in video and installation art has cross-pollinated mediums--video, books, the speaking voice, composed sound, strobe light pulsation, experimental text, image transformation, computer animation, the human body--to alter awareness of art as language. Language Willing modestly presents four of Hill's recent installations: Wall Piece, Language Willing, Accordions (The Belsunce Recordings, July 2001) and Crossbow.
