Motion pictures

In the early 1940s, Cecil Stokes, British filmmaker, produced Auroratone films, a movie to use in the treatment of mentally disturbed patients.


Abstract forms were projected on a screen accompanied by the singing of Bing Crosby.


The main idea, was "mimicking synaesthesia with the help of machinery " as Walter Forsberg states in his article "God Must Have Painted Those Pictures: Illuminating Auroratone's Lost History" (http://www.incite-online.net/forsberg4.html)


This is the only example of an original Cecil Stokes Auroratone that exists on the internet

If I take in consideration my work "Sacred Heart I also speak about abstract color patterns, and motion pictures. The movement that I also use is slow and constant.


There is a blending of golden shapes overlapping each other, and all the light effect motion is hypnotic and soothing.
