Light Motif

Frédéric Bonpapa

As coloured light reflects off flat surfaces and transparent balls roll and bounce around the room, the film resembles a series of colour-drenched abstract compositions. Rectangular and square blocks pile up as the music reaches a crescendo, forming perfectly geometric stalagmites surrounding the motionless monkey. The piece is a trippy visual translation of “Music for 18 Musicians – Section II”, a minimalist but syncopated composition by Steve Reich.
