Looking for Bruce Conner by Kevin Hatch( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a career that spanned five decades, most of them spent in San Francisco, Bruce Conner (1933--2008) produced a unique body of work that refused to be contained by medium or style. Whether making found-footage films, hallucinatory ink-blot graphics, enigmatic collages, or assemblages from castoffs, Conner took up genres as quickly as he abandoned them. His movements within San Francisco's counter-cultural scenes were similarly free-wheeling; at home in beat poetry, punk music, and underground film circles, he never completely belonged to any of them. Bruce Conner belonged to Bruce Conner. Twice he announced his own death; during the last years of his life he produced a series of pseudonymous works after announcing his 'retirement.' In this first book-length study of Conner's enormously influential but insufficiently understood career, Kevin Hatch explores Conner's work as well as his position on the geographical, cultural, and critical margins. Hatch finds a set of abiding concerns that inform Conner's wide-ranging works and changing personas. A deep anxiety pervades the work, reflecting a struggle between private, unknowable, interior experience and a duplicitous world of received images and false appearances. The profane and the sacred, the comic and the tragic, the enigmatic and the universal: each of these antinomies is pushed to the breaking point in Conner's work..."--Publisher's description

[Cosmic ray] by Bruce Conner( Visual )

6 editions published between 1961 and 1990 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The film begins with academy leader running down. At the number 4, the music, a song by Ray Charles, starts. The leader is intercut with frenetically shot and overlapped images: street lights at night, a naked woman dancing, fireworks. The film then incorporates an anti-war message, cutting in appropriated footage of a patriotic march, a Mickey Mouse cartoon showing Mickey raising the American flag at Iwo Jima, and war combat. Over all of this frenzied movement and editing, Ray Charles continues to sing about the girl with the red dress on who knows how to shake her thang
