#FilmShortFridays: Man Ray’s “Le retour à la raison” (1923); score by Noiseman433
February 2 @ 12:00 am - 12:05 pm
Short film directed by Man Ray consisting of animated textures, rayographs and the torso of Kiki of Montparnasse*.
“Acquiring a roll of a hundred feet of film, I went into my darkroom and cut up the material into short lengths, pinning them down on the worktable. On some strips I sprinkled salt and pepper, like a cook preparing a roast, on other strips I threw pins and thumbtacks at random; then I turned on the white light for a second or two, as I had done for my still Rayographs. Then I carefully lifted the film off the table, shaking off the debris, and developed it in my tanks. The next morning, when dry, I examined the work; the salt, pins and tacks were perfectly reproduced.” explained by Man Ray, in Self-Portrait
