Description: This exhibition presents one of the first multimedia projections ever made: Oskar Fischinger's Raumlichtkunst (Space Light Art), a re-creation of his multiple-screen film events, first shown in Germany in 1926, and recently restored by the Center for Visual Music in Los Angeles. Radical in format, its display of abstract shapes and colors produces, according to Fischinger, "an intoxication by light from a thousand sources."
