“’I remember my first birth in water,’ reads Anaïs Nin in her husband Ian Hugo’s aquatic fantasy formed of ‘hieroglyphs of a language in which our unconscious is trying to convey important, urgent messages.’ The mix of charged language and stunning abstract imagery and music moves the viewer towards ‘the lost continent within our selves” (Marianne Moore).” —Bruce Posner

Abstract color effects: Len Lye, Ian Hugo
Electronic music by Louis & Bebe Barron.
