Here we have an incredibly aesthetic piece of work that follows an almost rigorous (no pun intended) switch between an antiquated exercise film and flashes of various colors with a static-like sound attached to it. There is an obvious dichotomy with the black and white and the use of color, but as with a majority of experimental film, there is no apparent purpose for what is happening onscreen. Interesting for sure.
Frampton took shots from a public domain exercise video and intercut it with wild flashes of color in this, his first sound film. Intended as a tribute to Scottish physicist, Clerk Maxwell, the film is a cerebral and highly symbolic aesthetic exercise, in which every color and movement is representative of Maxwell's theories.
