Light Spill: Black-White-Gray / László Moholy-Nagy

Light Spill: Black-White-Gray (Ein Lichtspiel schwarz weiss grau) is a short film made by Hungarian artist László Moholy-Nagy, based on the shadow patterns created by his Light-Space Modulator, an early kinetic sculpture consisting of a variety of curved objects in a carefully choreographed cycle of movements. Created in 1930, the film was originally planned as the sixth and final part of a much longer work depicting the new space-time.

László Moholy-Nagy (1895 – 1946) was a Hungarian painter and photographer as well as a professor in the Bauhaus school. He was highly influenced by constructivism and a strong advocate of the integration of technology and industry into the arts.
