ZBIGNIEW RYBCZYNSKI
KWADRAT (1972)

Director: Zbigniew Rybczynski
Year: 1972
Time: 4 mins
Music:
Kazimierz Serocki
Warsztat Muzyczny 
Eye of Sound: Kwadrat ("Square") stands as a short but brilliant essay in shape management. Starting with pixel-like black and white silhouettes, the action gradually evolves to the depiction of a human being trapped inside a square-screen, and eventually returns to the original "kwadrat" form. The excellent angular music of Serocki, accompanied by the legendary Polish avantgarde ensemble Warsztat Muzyczny, renders Kwadrat all the more compelling and impressive.

  3. glad you liked it, lightactivity. one of the reasons I like this film so much is that many, many years ago I bought a LP (called Polish Avantgarde) which includes this track. I'll be posting more Rybczynski soon.
    Cheers

  4. I've got the same feeling for all this issues, specially if we're talking about photographies. The basic principle of a camera or camera obscura is that it is a dark room, or chamber from which, as far as possible, all light is excluded except the light that forms the image. On the other hand, the subject being photographed must be illuminated.23jj
