Skyworks, The Red Mile (1974) 16mm, color, 9.30 min

Genre: Documentary, Experimental

Keywords: Art & Artists

Documentary of conceptual artist Le Ann Bartok Wilchusky's "Skyworks, The Red Mile," dropped from 7,500 ft. altitude with skydivers, kinetically danced over the Pennsylvania countryside. This "Dropped Object" unrolled in free fall creating a line one mile long which altered the sky space dramatically. Shorter red pieces, held by the skydivers in free fall, spiral in and out as the skydiver as performer is held in G force. A visual symphony of falling lines. -- L.A.B.

Skyworks, Wind & Fire (1975) 16mm, color, 8.00 min

Genre: Documentary, Experimental

Keywords: Art & Artists

Film of "Dropped Objects" falling from 8,000 ft. altitudes with skydivers as performers. This film of a conceptual artist's work is a document of Skyworks but also meant to be expressive as an art film. A film of meditation revealing the cosmic breath as Skyworks pieces fall at the rate of 120 to 135 miles per hour. A breathing language of light and knowledge. Performance-controlled flight. Gyres cycling in and out -- the mystic spiral. A perception of light and space as energy lines alter the environment temporarily.
