Beauty in Danger, 2014

Brian Alfred

​'Beauty in Danger' is a new animation by Brian Alfred which takes his current subject matter of

Formula One race tracks as a means of exploring abstraction into motion. Inspired by early

experimental abstract films from artists like Hans Richter and Walter Ruttmann, Alfred worked

with friend and collaborator Ben Radatz on taking two dimensional recent works and animating

them. Alfred asked friend and musician Ian Williams, from the experimental band Battles, to create

a soundtrack as a starting point. The result is an exploration into formal investigations into

abstraction, speed and movement interacting with sound.
