LICHTSPIEL OPUS I

by Walter RUTTMANN
1921 / 35mm / color / sound / 1S / 11' 10

A visual art, distinguished from painting because of its course over time (like music) and the fact that the centre of gravity of the artistic object no longer resides (as in the case of the painting) in the reduction of an event (real or formal) at a moment, but precisely in the temporal development of its formal essence. As this art unfolds over time, one of its most important elements is the temporal rhythm of optical becoming.
