Agrippa: De occulta philosophia

Gábor Bódy &
Folkmar Hein &
Llurex (Egon Bunne) &

The silhouette of a person against a background of spherical rays, interrupted by panels from an alchemical treatise, accompanied by metallic beats in the rhythm of the images. The human being is clamped into the lines of a field of forces. Electronically generated lines are juxtaposed with the mystical proportional lines of the alchemical anatomy, their astrological meaning can be combined with comet-like light phenomena generated by the tracing effect of the video camera. (Dieter Daniels)
