Micheal Snow ‘Wavelength’
Wavelength, Michael Snow. 1967. Very seldom does a work of art completely alter the way you perceive a medium—that is, after experiencing it, you never will look at painting or hear music or read poetry or whatever exactly the same way ever again. Wavelength is just such a work. It is hard going and requires patience, focus, and attention (many will think it pretentious). You will have to turn off all your mobile distractions and turn down the lights and lock the door and tell your significant other to shut up. You will have to give yourself completely to Snow’s vision for 43 uninterrupted minutes. Most won’t have the stamina, but if your mind is open and your intentions pure, you’ll come out the other side changed forever.
