Art Film: The Way Things Go

A film by Peter Fischli and David Weiss
1987

30 minutes (Shown continuously in the Barton Gallery of Modern Art, Open through September 12, 2010) Art meets science in the Swiss art film The Way Things Go. The film documents a 100 foot-long kinetic sculpture composed of common materials arranged to form a chain reaction. Consisting of physical interactions and chemical reactions propelled by fire, air, gravity and a variety of corrosive materials, the action roves throughout a warehouse to form a scientific and artistic visual symphony. A self-destructing performance, the laws of chemistry and physics combine with art to form an unforgettable experience.
