Len Lye was a New Zealand filmmaker active 1930-1960. As a youth he studied Polynesian art. One of the first artists to paint and draw directly on film, he also developed several of the montage and fast-cutting techniques later used successfully in advertising.
His interest in the relationship between light and rhythm led to experiments with moving sculptures he called "tangibles." These later evolved into moving sculptures that generated their own music. In this program Lye speaks of his work and ideas, demonstrates some tangibles, and shows clips from his films. Black and White

Leonard Charles Huia Lye, was a Christchurch, New Zealand-born artist known primarily for his experimental films and kinetic sculpture.
