  • Barry Spinello

    From 1967-72 Spinello made films without camera or tape recorder by handpainting sound and picture onto clear 16mm leader (see Sonata for Pen, Brush and Ruler; Soundtrack; Six Loop Paintings). The idea was to integrate both sound and picture in a single creative process, using the same tool.

    Since 1972, Spinello has made documentary films, including the Academy Award nominated A Day in the Life of Bonnie Consolo.

    Recently Spinello returned to the ideas of filmpainting, but now working completely on computers. Towards an Art Form of the 21st Century will be completed soon.
