Planes (1972) 16mm, color, 17 min

Genre: Experimental

For Trisha Brown. Dancer: Simone Forti. Sound: "Vacuum and Voice" by Simone Forti. With thanks to Jill Johnston, Les Levine, Walter Gutman, and the New York State Council on the Arts. PLANES is an exploration of the corollaries between psychic space and the physical escape of consciousness beyond the earth's biosphere. Conceive of the theater as a vertical tunnel in which the audience is suspended in panes of rows. The city, as centralized magnetic center whose momentum is perpendicular, becomes the escape valve for a continuous ascent, spanning the poetics of macro-and-microcosm, culminating in the brief and rapid deceleration of re-entry. "Bathed with sky-and-earth." -- Newsweek. Created for the dance/film piece created by Trisha Brown for the Intermedia '68 Tour of New York State, culminating in a performance at the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM). Selected for the "Visual Alchemy" program of the Whitney Museum's New American Filmmaker series, January 1973.
