Stan Brakhage: Metaphors on Vision

Edited by P. Adams Sitney.

Featured image, from the Prelude, "Dog Star Man," is reproduced from 'Stan Brakhage: Metaphors on Vision.'“Imagine an eye unruled by man-made laws of perspective … an eye which does not respond to the name of everything but which must know each object encountered in life through an adventure of perception. How many colors are there in a field of grass to the crawling baby unaware of ‘Green?’” So begins Stan Brakhage’s (1933–2003) classic Metaphors on Vision. Originally published in 1963 by Jonas Mekas as a special issue of Film Culture, and designed by George Maciunas, it stands as the major theoretical statement by one of avant-garde cinema’s most influential figures, a treatise on mythopoeia and the nature of visual experience written in a style as idiosyncratic as his art. Long out of print, the volume is now available in this definitive edition from Anthology Film Archives and Light Industry, featuring Brakhage’s complete text in its distinctive original layout, as well as annotations by scholar P. Adams Sitney.

New edition of Stan Brakhage's epic 'Metaphors on Vision'

New edition of Stan Brakhage's epic 'Metaphors on Vision'

This early 60s Robert Benson photograph of Stan Brakhage working on the Prelude to his five-film masterpiece, Dog Star Man, is reproduced from Metaphors on Vision, Anthology Film Archives and Light Industry’s new edition of Brakhage’s iconic theoretical statement, originally published in 1963 by Jonas Mekas as a special issue of Film Culture magazine designed by George Maciunas. “The artist has carried the tradition of vision and visualization down through the ages,” Brakhage wrote. “In the present time a very few have continued the process of visual perception in its deepest sense and transformed their inspirations into cinematic experiences. They create a new language made possible by the moving picture image. They create where fear before them has created the greatest necessity. They are essentially preoccupied by and deal imagistically with—birth, sex, death, and the search for God.” continue to blog
