Details

From early collage animation created in the spirit of the surreal and dadaist work of Max Ernst, but with a wild, rough informality more akin to the expressionism of the Beat Generation (Monty Python animator Terry Gilliam quotes Vanderbeek as being one of his earliest sources of inspiration), to utopian experiments in expanded cinema, building a dome theatre with dozens of projectors or creating computer animated films and holographic experiments with Bell labs, Vanderbeek was a visionary well before his time. In the 1970s he designed global fax murals, steam projections and interactive television programs. 'Stan Vanderbeek is one of our few genuine film artists - a poet, a clown, a laughing man of the Bomb Age.' - Jonas Mekas 'Stan Vanderbeek is the Tom Swift of the underground, an inventor of processes and approaches. He is also a collagist, a collisionist, and like Georges Melies, whom he claims as godfather, an illusionist. His earliest films such as What Who How, are animated collages, his midway films such as Breathdeath, are collages of film technique, and his latest works, including the environmental Movie-Drome, are collages of media.' - Sheldon Renan This DVD contains: SCIENCE FRICTION, 1959, 10 min A LA MODE, 1959, 7 min BREATHDEATH, 1963, 15 min POEMFIELD N°2 1966 6' ACHOOO MR.
