Description

Details

Len Lye was a major figure in experimental filmmaking as well as a leading kinetic sculptor and an innovative theorist, painter and writer. He pioneered direct film, film made without a camera, by painting and scratching images directly onto celluloid, by reworking found footage, by casting shadows of objects onto unexposed film, and by experimenting with a number of early color techniques.

"There has never been a great film unless it was created in the spirit of the experimental filmmaker." - Len Lye

"All of a sudden it hit me: If there was such a thing as composing music, there could be such a thing as composing motion. After all, there are melodic figures, why can not there be figures of motion?" - Len Lye
