Made as an exercise for an animation class at Swinburne University in 1990, TATLIN is a rumination on the life & work of Vladimir Tatlin. The poem you hear is read by John Flaus, and was written by Velimir Klebnikov, whose description of Tatlin as ‘one of the order of sun-catchers’ was apt indeed.

The models and puppet of Tatlin were built on a tabletop and filmed with a Bolex camera over a period of several weeks.
