Vision is an art journal (ISSN 0749-8179) edited and curated by Tom Marioni of the Museum of conceptual art (MOCA) and published and produced by Kathan Brown of Crown Point Press [...] For this issue artists were given time on a phonograph record rather than pages in a magazine [...] Twelve artists from California, New York and Europe were each invited to prepare a twelve minute talk on any subject.

From the liner notes:
"This meeting took place on Ponape, one of the Caroline Islands in the Pacific ocean, about halfway between Hawaii and Japan, a few degrees above the equator north of Australia. Thirty-seven people met together over a period of a week in January 1980. Prepared talks by the twelve participating artists were given in the evenings before and after dinner. The days were spent exploring."
