A 12-minute experimental film evocation of the myth of Aphrodite, using multiple superimposed liquid images filmed with distorting mirrors and electronic soundtracking with subliminal vocal sounds. Aphrodite’s birth is paralleled with the creation of life itself, emerging from the matrix of the ocean and evolving to the stars. The film won prizes and Auslender’s innovative distortion technique was widely acclaimed. He also made a fascinating documentary on avant-garde sculptor Ron Boise, who designed fragmentary figures made from scrap metal and also musical sculptures which he called “space flowers”.
