PARTICLES IN SPACE

by Len LYE
1979 / b&w / sound / 1S / 4' 00

PARTICLES IN SPACE (1979) grew out of the same calligraphic material as FREE RADICALS. As with its companion film, PARTICLES is concerned with the energy of movement - of shaping light in darkness, by scratching on the film surface. In this film, Len LYE focuses on "a smaller, more compact zizz of energy than I'd ever got before on film." The rhythms of African drums again provide the musical counterpoint. "I thought FREE RADICALS as 'definitively revised' an almost unbelievably immense masterpiece (a brief epic) and that PARTICLES IN SPACE was its contemplative equivalent. COLOR CRY as great as I remembered it ...." - Stan BRAKHAGE
