The Way Things Go
1987, 30 minutes
Swiss artists Peter Fischli and David Weiss collaborated for 33 years in the creation of art that demonstrates a deep interest in the mechanisms that animate the universe of objects. For this film, the artists used an empty warehouse to build an enormous, precarious structure out of common household items. Then, with fire, water, gravity and chemistry, they created a spectacular chain reaction, a self-destructing performance of physical interactions, chemical reactions, and carefully crafted chaos. Both humorous and mesmerizing, this film will capture the attention of audiences of all ages. Closing January 14, 2017. Courtesy of Icarus Films.
