Kodachrome Film Test: 1922 in Motion and Color

26 Jun

This is one of the most magical things I ever came across in the www.  I keep coming back to it and it never looses any of its strange emotional power. The pulsing light gives an enchanted life to the dance of picture postcard poses and the color is such an otherworldly hue, you might think the apparatus just blushed because of the overwhelming  intimacy.

When we experience new technologies like the recent reinvention of 3d cinema, we feel a kind of psychedelic stimulation. This little film test might give us an idea of the thrill of the first color motion pictures.
