ASIFA-Hollywood Animation Archive Project Blog: Media: Artzybasheff's Machinalia



ASIFA-Hollywood Animation Archive Project Blog: Media: Artzybasheff's Machinalia: "In his introduction to the section titled 'Machinalia' in his book As I See, Boris Artzybasheff says, 'I am thrilled by machinery's force, precision and willingness to work at any task, no matter how arduous or monotonous it may be. I would rather watch a thousand ton dredge dig a canal than see it done by a thousand spent slaves lashed into submission. I like machines.'"

Stonking stuff there, Dave. It's all wonderfully weird, and I can't explain why the face of Infantilism is Bing Crosby.
