Peter Campus helped stretch the minimalist movement into the next frontier, pioneering live video art that incorporates the viewer and twists the room into an almost dreamlike, man-made mirage. Starting May 5, The University of Michigan Museum of Art will display Campus' 1971 innovation Kiva, a live-video feed that turns the camera on the viewer. Through moving suspended mirrors the image continuously alters itself — multiplying, fragmenting and shifting what's on the screen. UMMA, 525 S. State St. 734-764-0395. www.umma.umich.edu
