Prince Rupert's Drops

Directed by Hollis Frampton
United States, 1969
Avant-Garde, Short

Synopsis

Two repetitive, banal rhythmic acts – as it were from the observe and reverse of a phenakistiscope disk – factored and expanded into a cinema filmstrip. Note: Prince Ruperts Drops are not a confection or a nose candy, but a physical demonstration of extreme internal stresses in equilibrium.
