Golden Voyage

1973, 14:12 min, color, sound

In this early work, an electronic homage to Magritte, the Vasulkas demonstrate fundamental imaging techniques. Inspired by Magritte's painting The Golden Legend, this exercise employs a three-camera set-up, with images layered through a multikeyer, to create the illusion of objects moving through spatial planes. Loaves of French bread embark on a surreal video journey through electronic landscapes, finally arriving in an abstract space. The animated loaves add sense of playfulness to this early articulation of illusory space and three-dimensionality in video.
