Much more activity than Rhythmus 21
30 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Many more shapes and faster movements. I suppose audiences had matured quite a lot since Rhythmus 21? Here, the shapes are not just simple geometric shapes, they are complex lines and bars overlapping to form new shapes.

We watch white shapes dancing on black background, which changes when the white shape fills up the screen completely, and black lines and figures bounce around on the now white background.

Grey tones look like shafts of light cascading onto the floor from an open doorway.

There are times when the mind tries to find shapes in all of this chaos, like looking for faces in clouds.
