The spiral Nauman Vs Duchamp Image Duchamp, Disks Inscribed with Puns (used in Anemic Cinema, 1926)Image Bruce Nauman ‘The True Artist Helps the World by Revealing Mystic Truths’ 1967 “The spiral also featured prominently in non-objective cinema. Using symmetrical geometrical figures, artists created beautiful semi-abstract moving images. The history of non-objective experimental cinema stretches back to the films of the surrealist or dada movements. Marcel Duchamp used geometrical pattern in his 1926 film Anemic Cinema.” “In Bruce Nauman’s work, The True Artist Helps the World by Revealing Mystic Truths (Window or Wall Sign) (Fig. 38), he makes direct reference to the metaphysical by the use of text. The neon sign was originally displayed in the window of a shop the artist was using as a studio at the time. The work blended in with the busy environment, competing with the myriad of neon signs in the same street. His intention was for the viewer to see the sign and subconsciously register it, and for those who wanted to contemplate his statement, to stop and consider it.” From: Alyssa Simone http://eprints.utas.edu.au/11703/3/Whole-Alyssa_Simone-Exegesis_Final_Body1.pdf
