Stan VanDerBeek-Symmetricks (1972)

By Rhizome



From Channel 53, the video blog of artists John Michael Boling and Javier Alberto Morales. "Symmetricks" is a prime example of experimental filmmaker Stan VanDerBeek's computer-generated animations. Quotation below from the original YouTube entry:

"A computer-created animation of high speed stroboscope mandalas with molecular-like energy. The surprise of this film is the color produced from the strobing black and white symmetrical images. Done with an electronic stylus on a special computer at MIT. This film demonstrates the possible use of the computer interacting with the graphic artist" - Stan VanDerBeek
