Super-Imposition (1968) 16mm, black and white, 17 min

Genre: Experimental

Similes of a slippery TV tube gesticulate break and supply -- a long view of multiple images (Mr. Johnson's war, is it Howard Johnson's or President Johnson's war?) -- a long curving view, breakfast with aspirin, good grief -- or Goodbye. (SUPER-IMPOSITION is a videotape experiment with multiple images, made with film artist-in-residency at Colgate University.) Life and art ... interacting ... it is interesting to note that movies and psychoanalysis are approximately the same age ... there are now more TV sets in America than bathtubs. There are more radios in America than people. Although 75 percent of Japanese households have television sets, statistics show only 35 percent have running water and fewer than ten percent have flush sanitation. Some 40 percent of American children have one or more.
