About

An acknowledged classic in experimental film, OFFON is a dynamic abstract display of virtuoso film and video techniques used directly and poetically to evoke a visceral awareness of fundamental realities below the surface of normal perception.
"The language of OFFON is evocation. We gaze at these iconic forms hypnotically, much the same as we are drawn to fire or water, because they make us aware of fundamental realities below the surface of normal perception." – Gene Youngblood
"OFFON is so striking a work, so obviously a landmark, that it has been acquired by virtually every major film art collection in America, from the Museum of Modern Art to the Smithsonian Institute." – Sheldon Renan, Curator, Pacific Film Archive ... a perfect, magical fusion of non-verbal communication and advanced technological filmmaking... Indeterminacy, the union of opposites, the cosmic, the expansion of consciousness, the going beyond rationalism; all these are intimated purely visually, almost subliminally, to those willing to see – Amos Vogel, Film as a Subversive Art New York Film Festival;
