Clip of the Week
Untitled Light Show Loop by Adam K. Beckett

Fresh off the scanner are the amazing Light Show Loops of Adam K. Beckett. Due to the wonderful voluntarily work of Pat O'Neill and George Lockwood at Lookout Mountain Studios we now have 30 of these loops all set and ready for the DVD due out very soon (we promise). The story goes that Adam used to get together with friends, pull out a bunch of projectors showing many of these loops at once - occasionally pulling one off and throwing another on - and experiment with different hallucinogens to create an entire sensory experience.



Site of the Week
Corpus Fluxus

The home of Ross Lipman's work and the Inquiry Towards the Practice of Secular Magic. A complex of cinematic history and stranger the fiction oddities. The Inquiry Towards the Practice of Secular Magic will hold a gallery exhibition and cinematic performance event this coming weekend at piXel (+) freQuency. The event will surely delight most of your five senses.






Person of the Week
Robert Breer

Robert Breer has been a major figure in experimental animation for more than 40 years. His large body of work includes paintings, kinetic sculpture and films. He has given retrospective exhibitions of his work at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, MOMA and the Whitney Museum in New York. Born in Detroit, Breer studied painting at Stanford and moved to Europe in the 1940s, where he was influenced by the work of Piet Mondrian and Wassily Kandinsky. Returning to the U.S. in the early 1960s, he embarked on a career in animated films, bringing a Modernist perspective to his films. He passed away this past week at the ripe age of 84 leaving us with a wonderful and glorious legacy of brilliant films.
