Surrealistic transformation of a footbridge into an eye that opens to a path that leads to a glowing flower that becomes a body that becomes a landscape, have the effect, in Vanderbeek’s words, of an “experiment in animation in which the eye of the viewer travels deeper and deeper into each scene, finding new relationships and visual metaphors in what appears, at first sight, a simple scene... Juxtaposed with what we see is what we think we saw... The memory of the dream is as real as the dream itself, but it is completely different from the dream."

Vanderbeekiana! (29’) 1968

It is part of the interesting nature of art that at this same juncture in the crossroads of art, with the perfection of a means to capture exactly perspective and “realism,” the artist’s vision is turning more to his interior, and in a sense to an infinite exterior, abandoning the logic of aesthetics and springing full-blown into a juxtaposed and simultaneous world that ignores the one-point-perspective mind and the one-point-perspective lens.

We’re just fooling around on the outer edges of our own sensibilities. The new technologies will open higher levels of psychic communication and neurological referencing.” For the last five years Stan VanDerBeek has been working simultaneously with live-action and animated films, single and multiple-projection formats, intermedia events, video experiments, and computer graphics. Clearly a Renaissance Man, VanDerBeek has been a vital force in the convergence of art and technology, displaying a visionary’s insight into the cultural and psychological implications of the Paleocybernetic Age.
-Gene Youngblood, Expanded Cinema 1970
