Animation cels and black background from the animated film Autobahn. Cyan figure floating amongst discs with yellow figure in foreground. Made by Halas and Batchelor.
'Autobahn' is a 13-minute animation commissioned by the record company of the band Kraftwerk. Fresh out of the Royal College of Art, animator Roger Mainwood was given a free reign to produce his own response to the music (he never met or discussed visuals with the group).
