Ornamentals 1979, Film (16mm), 15min, b/w and color, silent.

This film was crucial to my understanding of composition, to my desire for an encyclopedic construction (the world "out" there), and reaffirmed my allegiance to rhythm, the rhythm of body-nerve-mind.

"Juxtapositions of light made this dream consumed image between the penny arcades & mirrors reflecting masturbating naked brain of magnetized nitrous screens crackling is like pulp beside dummy circumstance." - Bruce Andrews, Jimmy and Lucy's House of K

"THE RHYTHM!!!! the rhythm, like jazz, comes out of & returns to the BODY (the animal nature of film!, illustrated by the organic reticulation patterns of the self-processed segments): the 'meanings' of the shots (constantly undermined thru highly intentional overload): ... all films are 'different EVERY viewing' but this one more specifically so: colorfully constructed along lines of color: associative values emerge as if by chance, like memory, fleeting but there, reemerging altered: all films different every viewing but this one more intentionally so: takes several screenings to even know where it begins ...." - Henry Hills, Cinemanews
