Arabesque (1975)

James Whitney' shorts are visually based on modernist composition theory with carefully varied permutation of forms manipulated with cut-out masks. He pursue technological, theoretical, mathematical, architectonic and musical ideas which eventually led him to his masterful pioneer work in computer graphics. Meanwhile, Whitney became increasingly involved in contemplative, spiritual interests.



With Arabesque, Whitney demonstrated the principle of harmonic progression, experimenting with the eccentricities of Islamic architecture, which, though ultimately harmonic, contain many characteristic reverse curves in its embellishments.

He has a lot of talent, but in a weird way, I mean, he is not the normal singer we love since moment we listen to his lyrics, he is more like the singer able to make you feel a lot of changes and different emotions while he is singing.
