Apparent Motion

Directed by Paul Sharits
United States, 1975
Avant-Garde, Short

Synopsis

Sharits applied color gels using an optical printer to code up to six superimposed layers of grain fields, activating static with the perceptual illusion of motion. One of his most painterly films, the result is an image that appears at once cellular and cosmic.
