Hollis Frampton "Two and a Half Minutes of Surface Tension": NYC in 1968

March 09, 2012

Because it is a Friday, and we are doing the morning rounds, we came across this wonderful clip from Hollis Frampton's experimental 1968 film, Surface Tension. The people at Criterion Collection released the clip, with Frampton noting of Surface prior to his death, “a single dolly shot from the middle of the Brooklyn Bridge to the lake in Central Park." The original works out to about 10-minutes, but this 2 1/2 minute bit will be good for now. (via)
