"The Way Things Go" (video review)

The Way Things Go
Directed by Peter Fischli and David Weiss

A presentation by the artists Peter Fischli and David Weiss, the film documents a work in which everyday objects are used to explore the properties of physics and chemistry. Their elaborate 100 ft. structure demonstrates objects and movement in fluid arrangements of slow to quick action in a fascinating combination of science and art. With no narration and only the sound of the objects themselves as they undergo motion catalyzed by water, gas, fire and chemical reactions, Fischli and Weiss allow the objects to tell their own mesmerizing story. Bonus features include biographies on the artists and information on their work.

This video is among the many available to borrow from the Visual Resources Center in the Art, Architecture and Engineering Library. Search for videos in Mirlyn or in our video database.
