Christian Lebrat’s cinema deals with questions of structure and color in a perpetual attempt to escape the frame’s constraints. As the screen explodes with stroboscopic rhythms and abstract combinations of shapes based on rigorous mathematic schemata, color and film form are objectified. The film becomes an envelopping psychedelic experience for the viewer, where the abstract intersects with the “real”, and the vibration of color transforms the very act of looking.
