Hans Richter's position in the art world was unique. As one of the earliest exponents of Dada, he was also one of the first to recognize the new possibilities cinematography offered the artist. He participated in the first avant-garde film movement alongside Fernand Leger, Marcel Duchamp, Man Ray, Francis Picabia, Jean Cocteau and Salvador Dali, and later in New York his teachings would influence many of the "New American Cinema" filmmakers.

I am assuming that this was impressive in the time it was made but did not age well. I am so used to all the many bells and whistles built into my media-saturated environment that this was just boring. It probably was not boring for the original audience.

Watch it as if you were watching an ancient and sacred archeological object.

Hypnotic and meditative. Seems much longer than the mere 3 minutes it is. Thought of Brion Gysin's dream machine in parts. The artifacts and imperfections add something too, the visual equivalent of listening to an old slightly scratched record.
