[FRAY] CALENDAR FOR THIS WEEK MAY 4 AND 5:

THURSDAY MAY 4

CALCULATIONS: PIONEERS OF COMPUTER ANIMATION
THURSDAY MAY 4 @ 6:00 PM
Gene Siskel Film Center
164 N. State
CHI IL .US
$ 9 USD

Decades before Hollywood CGI spectaculars, artists worked with  
computers to create an aesthetic specific to the machine.  At IBM,  
Bell, and in their own home-built labs, they generated visionary  
spectacles from mathematical precision--complex abstractions,  
stroboscopic patterns, kinetic rhythms, and volumetric illusions.    
Tonight's program is a cross-section of films by these early pioneers- 
from John Whitney's stunning, analog-computer-generated CATALOG  
(1961, 7 min.) and the pulsating geometry of Lillian Schwartz's  
ENIGMA (1972, 4 min., archival print) to the dense digital  
metaphysics of John Stehura's CIBERNETIK 5.3 (1965-69, 8 min.,  
archival print) and the allegorical characters of Peter Foldes'  
HUNGER (1973, 12 min.).  Also on the program: HUMMINGBIRD (Charles  
Csuri, 1967 10 min.); SUNSTONE (Ed Emshwiller, 1979, 3 min.);  
CALCULATED MOVEMENTS (Larry Cuba, 1985, 6 min.); POEMFIELD NO. 5:  
FREE FALL (Stan VanDerBeek, 1966, 7 min.); PERMUTATIONS (John  
Whitney, 1968, 7 min.). 1961-1985, Canada/USA, 64 min.
16mm.
