What it is: Abstract animation

No plot

Yes, it’s more avant-garde experimental abstract animation here. This one mostly involves white and black rectangles on black and white backgrounds growing larger or shrinking; I assume the rhythm is captured by the speed at which these rectangles change size. It’s pretty much what you might expect from an early attempt at abstract animation; it’s watchable if you’re in the mood, but hardly exciting or compelling.
