Hans Richter, painter and filmmaker, was introduced to abstract art in 1912. He moved from Germany to Switzerland in 1916, where he joined the Dada movement and began film experiments. Richter continued filmmaking in the United States after 1940. The readings on the soundtrack are fragments from several poems by Dadaist Hugo Ball.

I love it! All the eyeballs remind me of the band called The Residents. The soundtrack was also illuminating.

"Eso sí que es". I think the Spanish saying of "it is what it is" can be applied in some sense to the Dadaist movement. Even though this is as jumbled and nonsensical as any of the Jordan work that I've bashed, it's forgiven by its context. It's art that pokes fun at itself and acknowledges its absurdity. It admits that there's nothing here to "interpret", so you can just go along and appreciate the trippy eyeballs. I like the trippy eyeballs. I like the execution of interesting visual effects, therefore I like this a lot.

Calamity. Mishmash. Dada.

It's as avant-garde as you think it's going to be.
