Len Lye vs. Takashi Ohashi



"Kou kou" is a visual work (2013) based on an abstract animation synchronized with a song comprising the unique syllabic sounds of the Japanese language, without actually using any full words. "I don't draw what I see. I draw what I wish to see." - Takashi Ohashi



Free Radicals is an "animation film made by Len Lye in 1958. In Free Radicals he used black film stock and scratched designs into the emulsion. The result was a dancing pattern of flashing lines and marks, as dramatic as lightning in the night sky. In 2008, this film was added to the United States National Film Registry." - Wikipedia
