Marcin Giżycki
Poland 2012 / 3’

Three animated variations on Polish graphic artist Henryk Berlewi’s 1924 work Mechanofaktura. Dynamic Contrasts. Many years later, the artist said that he saw his mechano-facture’ concept as a substitute for film. As a guide for audiences, he set down specific instructions for how best to view his art. Kinefaktura is based on some hints given by the artist himself.
