Len Lye – KALEIDOSCOPE – 1935

21 02 2010

Released in 1935 (and sponsored by Churchman’s cigarettes), Kaleidoscope is one of Len Lye’s animated creations. The combination of painterly backgrounds and geometric shapes seems somewhat ‘quaint’ by today’s standards but they exhibit superb synchronicity with the lively soundtrack.
