Bask in the glow of the screen with this unique selection of artist-made movies. Drawing inspiration from nature and optical effects, these imaginative light studies provide a landscape of visual evocations. The dimmed atmosphere of the microcinema sets the perfect scene to luxuriate in these abstract, transportive, and luminescent motion pictures.
