Marie Menken

Visual Variations On Noguchi (1945) 16mm, black and white, 4 min

Genre: Experimental

"Poetry of natural sound" score by Lucille Dlugoszewski. "By use of hand-held, ambulating camera, unusual editing and a startling experimental score by Lucille Dlugozewski, the sculptures of the famous Japanese-American artist, Isamu Noguchi, are given audacious movement in a controversial art-film experiment." -- Cinema 16 "Never before have I seen such purely dynamic treatment of sculpture in film. Marie Menken has successfully transformed Noguchi's sculpture into her own medium." -- Norman McLaren
