Each of First Work Set’s fifty-eight fabric elements or “instruments for processes” are intended to be unfolded and used by viewers according to instructions concisely outlined in their individual titles. Walther’s First Work Set invites visitors to volunteer in a two-fold activity, to become both beholder and participant—subject and object—and to engage in actions as individuals and with others, forging a conceptual and formal circle of implications. In his model, art is experienced as ephemeral event. Beyond simple tasks related to everyday life, the activities the work generates refer to the rehearsal of a set of ideas, as he stated: “I kept trying to show that what I was offering was not real action relationships but rather demonstration situations. Practice situations.
