"Stan Brakhage stated that people mainly look in a 'prescribed' way. We are trained to see light as something that bounces off objects, but all too often we miss the subtle shades and variations that emanate from light. In this way, we forget that every sensory perception is a creative act and in doing so, we also eliminate our responsibility for our own imagination. Brakhage's films are an intense avalanche of colours and impressions. He explored the world by working with extreme zooms, filming with his camera through a crystal ashtray, or by painting and scratching film reels".
