KATOPTRON is a kind of audio-visual pudding which contains among others ingredients: Abel Gance's La folie du docteur Tube. The optical distortion, which is at the core of Gance's movie, becomes proliferating in KATOPTRON. Main stream cinema ( Kubrick) but also experimental movies (Malcolm Le Grice) and video art ( Gary Hill) got pulled through that wormhole. However, saturation does not prevent some paradoxical order in this chaos.
