Drux Flux

7 11 2011

Part figurative, part abstract, Drux Flux is an animated short comprised of fast-flowing images showing modern people crushed by industry. Inspired by One-Dimensional Man, by philosopher Herbert Marcuse, the filmmaker deconstructs industrial scenes and their terrifying geometry to show the inhumanity of progress.

This short piece has the flavor of a Soviet style propoganda film. And yet its purpose seems the opposite of its visual effect. It is very impersonal. Unrelentless. And I had a physical reaction to it. Revulsion. And perhaps this was the producer’s end.
