Animania: Season Two - Broadcast 13

Top of page

A ringing sound breaks into a woman's sleep. The sinister telephone becomes tangled in its own cord and plunges into dreamlike oblivion. As no one answers the call, nothing will ever come of it, and it will remain an enigma, cloaked in anonymity and nothingness. Film without words.

An early experiment in employing computers to animate film. The result is a dazzling vibration of geometric forms in vivid colour, an effect achieved by varying the speed at which alternate colours change, so producing optical illusions. In between these screen pyrotechnics there appears a simple line form gyrating in smooth rhythm. Sound effects are created by registering sound shapes directly on the sound track of the film.

1999, 22 min 41 s
