A Color Box by Len Lye

We watched this in my Time, Motion, and Communication class and the quality and energy of it really delighted me. Lye painted directly on the film strips and then ran it. It made me wonder: was he really able to coordinate the visuals to the music as well as he did? He must have, right? It wasn’t some happy accident?

I would love to live a more cheerful and Jazzy life so this could be the title sequence in the movie of my life.
