Re: The Dot and The Line

I found a site called Design for Freedom where you can download the animated version of The Dot and The Line. It took me a whole afternoon at 54.6 Kbps and I never did get the very end but it was fun to see the film again. It brought me back to the junior high classroom where, sitting in one of those orange Melmac desk chairs with the wire bookracks underneath, I was first so totally enchanted by it. This time some of the background patterns made me think of the colorful psychedelic work of Brazilian artist Beatriz Milhazes . She is represented in NYC by the James Cohan Gallery where her show closed just five days ago.
