Synopsis


Lichtspiel: Opus II (1922) expanded upon the formal innovations in Opus I, again employing a mixture of angular forms and organic forms in the oil-on-glass technique. Although shorter, it is also faster paced, and clearly a more developed version of the motifs and structure from his first film. However, it also included the use of kinestasis—still images animated through camera movement—and multiple planes of glass with animation, allowing two sets of curved animated forms, one white and the other black, to interact on screen, wrapping around and masking each other against a grey background.
