Flip & Two Twisters (DVD)
A film by Shirley Horrocks. Flip & Two Twisters is a documentary about Len Lye, the great film-maker and kinetic sculptor. This dynamic artist spent his life developing a highly original art of motion.
Flip & Two Twisters explores Lye’s career and ideas with the help of historical footage of the artist. It includes some great examples of Lye’s film making, and some spectacular camerawork (by Leon Narbey) of his sculpture in motion, including the wild rhythms of his great work Flip and Two Twisters. The film also chronicles attempts to realise Lye’s plans for giant versions of his sculpture.
