Unnatural Bodies (1992)

Film details

Cast & Credits


Examines the work of kinetic sculptor Jim Whiting, who for years has been making bizarre automated "human" sculptures, automating bits of plastic, dummies' arms and disused objects with compressed air. He talks about his inspirations and influences, and explains how he strives to capture half-glimpsed images, the stuff of nightmares or dreams.
