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.
