Meredith Tromble: In the performance Walking Mission Street (1976) you and Jody Proctor traversed the entire eight-mile length of Mission Street in San Francisco, walking in silence. Was the point of that piece to create an inner experience of the space for yourselves?
Doug Hall: No, it was an image. We were following a marker through a series of zones, a series of situations called psycho-geographical spaces, which were all different, and we were the thing that was consistent through it. I would like to believe that there is emotional and psychological content in my work, but I don’t think it ever provided an expressionist moment. (Hall and Tromble 2000: 18)
