Hollis Frampton 1936-1984
Prince Ruperts Drops (1969)
Hollis Frampton demonstrates the scientific principle of equilibrium using two different scenes. In the first, a closeup of a mouth is shown, with a tongue licking a lollipop rapidly. In the second, a hand dribbles a ball rhythmically, sometimes allowing in to nearly bounce into the lens of the camera. Mirror images and alternate perspectives of each demonstration are provided.
