Genre: Experimental

LIGHT DISPLAY: COLOR is the culmination of several years of development of analogue and digital images derived from original 16mm footage shot of the first working reconstruction of Laszlo Moholy-Nagy's pioneering kinetic sculpture LIGHT DISPLAY MACHINE, or LICHTEQUILST, first shown at the International Building Exhibition in Paris in 1939. Moholy had designed the sculpture, both to exist as itself, and to be the subject of a projected six-part film called LIGHT DISPLAY, BLACK, WHITE, GRAY, of which only the sixth section featuring the Light Display Machine was finished. In the early 1970's Moholy's wife Sibyl worked with several engineers on a working reconstruction of the machinem, which was exhibited at the Howard Wise Gallery in New York City. --J. Y.
