> DESCRIPTION

This exhibition presents one of the first multimedia projections ever made—Oskar Fischinger’s Raumlichtkunst (Space Light Art), a recreation of his multiple-screen film events first shown in Germany in 1926, recently restored by the Center for Visual Music in Los Angeles. Radical in its format, its multiple screens of abstract shapes, color, and light produced an experience that, in Fischinger’s own description of his work, created “an intoxication by light from a thousand sources.”
