I saw this animation today on Dangerous Minds. I don't think I've ever seen anything quite like it. It's got a very unsettling plot line and the soundtrack is equally so, but what really interested me is the style of the animation. Created in 1974, it's an interesting example of early computer animation. It looks like very crude hand-drawn line drawings, but then the way the lines move is where the computer generation comes into play. All of the lines seem to explode and then reassemble into a different object or scene.
