len lye’s 70 year old “flash” style animations
Last weekend we took the kids to a few small art galleries in Bergen. At two, Jessica has been well-trained, and loves to go to “art zeums” (art museums), and Scott and I are all for encouraging family outings that we grownups actually would have enjoyed without kids as well. At Hordaland Kunstsentrum we discovered the artist Len Lye, whose movies seem strangely digital but were made in the 1930s. Here’s an example – I especially love the bit from just after two minutes in and onwards.
