Swiss artists Peter Fischli and David Weiss have collaborated on kinetic installations since 1979. All of their work to date, whether in photography, film, drawing, or sculpture, has demonstrated a deep interest in the mechanisms that animate the universe of objects. They remove these things that surround us from their contexts in our daily lives, and then restructure their relationships to one another. Without narration or interviews this delightful film presents physical interactions, chemical reactions, and precisely crafted chaos worthy of Rube Goldberg or Alfred Hitchcock. (Peter Fischli & David Weiss; Switzerland; 1988; 30 min)
