Documentation of Charles Dockum’s performance of his Mobilcolor Projector at the Guggenheim Museum, New York in 1952. Dockum's Mobilcolor work is intentionally silent, no music may be added.
Dockum had received support from curator Hilla Rebay for 10 years to construct a Mobilcolor Projector for the Museum, but it was not used again after this. This performance was filmed by Ted Nemeth, Mary Ellen Bute’s cameraman and partner. Dockum returned to California to construct other Mobilcolor projectors. This is the first of several films documenting his silent Mobilcolor performances ; this film and several later films have been restored by Center for Visual Music.
