Al Razutis went to Burning Man 2015 and filmed the art, people, and various creations and events in a spontaneous setting and documented this world-famous 'anarchist art event'. These films will be released in 2016 as a single 2D film and a number of stereoscopic 3D experimental films by Razutis. More information will be coming upon each release and date, including 2016 New Fillm Release 'Scenes from Burning Man 2015' 13 min. short subject - HD & Stereoscopic 3D.
Al Razutis' 1970 optical printing classic AAEON was presented in a program of West-Coast Experimental Films joining other classic films and makers including Bruce Conner (Cosmic Ray, Crossroads), David Rimmer (Variations on a Cellophane Wrapper), and Pat O'Neill (7362, Runs Good) presented November 23, 2015 at The Cinematheque, Vancouver, Canada.
These 3D Worlds were built in VRML CG 'virtual space' in natural (orthoscopic) 3D, feature video maps of touch sensitive objects and facades with music. Coded with love of adventure in virtual space.
Poetic avant-garde subjects, internationally shown, with selections at
the Paris 1997, and the European Media Arts Festival 2002 Germany.
VRML WORLDS UROBOROS by Razutis first premiered in North America in 1999 Vancouver, Canada at 'The Body Electric' exhibition.
In 1972 Vancouver Visual Alchemy Studio (Inc.) was created to pursue independent avant-garde films, synaesthetic video art, the newly emerging holographic arts and stereoscopic 3D which would later include interactive 3D VR. These pages attest to both the origins of these works and their public presence in exhibitions, education, and technological innovations.
