Stan Vanderbeek

Mankinda (1959) 16mm, black and white, 10 min

Genre: Experimental

Various projects by Vanderbeek include the construction of the "Movie Dome" in Stony Point, New York, an audio-visual laboratory for simultaneous projection of dance, magic theatre, sound, and film; computer graphics: the development of images and graphics designed by manmade dialogue; animation and new graphics, projection systems, multi-media: integrated information concerts, movie-murals experiments with motion/light/stills/film/magic theatre. MANKINDA is an experimental combination of verse and hand-painted images creating graphic as well as verbal excitement. The letters themselves assume an almost ideographic significance. Vanderbeek described this film as a "visual tunnel, with a poem carved in light upon walls."
