Len Lye was startlingly original and endlessly inventive. Scottish poet Alastair Reid called the New Zealand-born filmmaker, kinetic sculptor, painter, and poet “the least boring person who ever existed.” Today Lye’s work is held in major galleries around the world. In this captivating book Lye’s biographer, Roger Horrocks, weaves the artist’s writings into a memoir of his fascinating life. Lye spent much of his life creating innovative art around the world, including New Zealand, London, New York, and Puerto Rico. Anyone interested in modern art and artists of the 20th century will be fascinated by these insights into Lye’s mind and art, which are enriched throughout the book with visually striking illustrations that capture the essence of Lye’s work.
