Storyline

After the title, a white screen gives way to a series of frames suggestive of abstract art, usually with one or two colors dominating and rapid change in the images. Two figures emerge from this jungle of color: the first, a shirtless man, appears twice, coming into focus, then disappearing behind the bursts and patterns of color, then reappearing; the second figure appears later, in the right foreground. This figure suggests someone older, someone of substance. The myth? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Eight seconds of joy.
2 October 2002 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

This is one of my favourite works by the legendary Stan Brakhage, and it's only eight seconds long! This indescribable eye-candy is often shown repeated three times, followed by a much slower-running detail so you can see the complexity and the abundance of images (resembling computer pixels) that dance by your eyes. As usual, Brakhage is making a piece on perception of vision. If you do see the version which has the slow detail on the end, you will be equally surprised by how much you missed and how much your fleeting eye did grasp after all.
