dancing light

RIP to experimental abstract filmmaker
 Jordan Belson who passed last week

"Part avant-garde animator, part optical alchemist, part mystic, part psychologist of perception, Mr. Belson made more than 30 short films between the late 1940s and 2005, all of which defy ready classification.
Wordless, they employ moving, abstract images of mercurial fluidity painstakingly choreographed to music. As they slowly change size, form, color and direction, the images rivet the eye."
                                                 -New York Times 

a memorial screening of his work
 is happening October 19 at Pacific Film Archive in Berkeley
I am unable to post his work but here are a few of his contemporaries- 
all are wizards of light.
