Symphonie Diagonale (1924)

Symphonie Diagonale was one of the very first experimental animations ever made.

German artist Hans Richter worked closely with Swedish painter Viking Eggeling, both prominent figures involved in the avant-garde Dada group. Each artist had been experimenting with abstract form in order to create a new method of visual communication. Looking back at the root of experimental film and animation helps inspire my own work. Through the Pure Cinema and avante-garde movements, I am seeing recurring patterns of the combination of abstract animation and film. This is something that I am keen to explore further.
