Verticales (1960)

In complete harmony and in sync to Maurice Blackburn’s music, a bundle of parallel straight lines revolve, multiply, swarm, and then, disperse, in this minimalist experiment in raw and immaculate design. At varying speeds, the directly engraved into the film lines, gyrate and group harmoniously, creating an appealing sensory stimulation.

Horizontales (1962)

Lines: Horizontal is a movie made by etching lines directly onto film, like its sister Lines: Vertical. The entire movie consists of horizontal lines dancing in various mathematical patterns to beautiful music.

– Norman McLaren & Evelyn Lambert
