Constructivism – Tower Bawher

Today’s inspiration is another great animation from Theodore Ushev, Bashnia Tatlina Tower Bawher.

Tower Bawher is a constructivist-style abstract animated film made in 2005. The film’s title is an allusion to Tatlin’s Tower, an unbuilt structure conceived by Vladimir Tatlin (1885-1953, Russian architect and painter) as a tribute to the glory of the proletariat.  Drawing on the tower’s design, the film builds toward a utopian goal, until the grandiose, futuristic forms abruptly tumble. The film contains visual references to such Russian artists as Vertov, Rodchenko, Lissitzky and Popova.
