Some Manipulations

1969, 3:10 min, color, silent, 16 mm film on video

Some Manipulations depicts a series of 1969 performances at the Judson Church by Fluxus artists Jean Toche, Steve Young, Nam June Paik, and Al Hansen. However, it is no passive documentation: Yalkut's camera zooms into and out of discrete gestures and abstracted forms at high speed; he divides the screen into four quadrants, each holding a separate image. The juxtaposition creates a roiling, staccato mix of color, motion and shape.
