Solar Do-Nothing Machine

Film Review by Dean Duncan May 26, 2015

Is that solar apparatus powering that thing? We know what abstract art is. This is abstract mechanics: these machines don’t do or make anything. They move for the sake of movement alone. Not only do the Eames do some cool things with narrow depths of field, but also with the part of the image that is plain out of focus. When they’re not focusing they’re still exploring different depths of field. Their blacktop film made us think about abstraction. So does this, in a different manner or connection. Paul Cezanne!
