The painter and photographer Lászlo Moholy-Nagy was one of the creators of the New Vision movement. He also experimented with moving images. He was a professor at the Bauhaus and the author of theoretical texts on culture and image in which he prophesized the arrival of a new, free, creative, rational, and sensorial man.
Similarly, Moholy-Nagy conducted experiments with the idea of incorporating the movement of optic and kinetic elements into pictorial representation. Composition is an example of this and seems to be related to the project entitled Light-Space Modulator, a machine he invented made of glass spirals, rods, and translucent perforated discs lit by light bulbs that generated an infinite number of dynamic forms.
Likewise, in this piece Moholy-Nagy adds dynamism to the space and introduces light and volume into a flat representation. The colored circles balance the composition and open up escape paths, like a metaphor of the industrial world that expands in all directions with no regard for harmony or order.
