Style (Part 2)

1988, 4:25 min, color, sound

Produced to introduce an exhibition of applied arts and design at the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney, Style moves from the 18th century to the 20th century in the space of four minutes. From fleurs de lis to modernist geometry, each "scene" of this rhythmic display of decorative patterning is constructed from images of objects in the museum's collection. With pictorial sophistication and wit, Callas creates a dazzling template of moving design.

Designed by Peter Callas.
