This film represents Robakowski’s profound fascination with the line. It was already in 1976 that he walked, ran, jumped and rode on the line to produce a film image of his vital energy. Here, the line serves the purpose of manifesting the artists marked pursuit in the 1970s to “brighten various structures of discipline”. The luminous line moving along the screen “lives” like the impulsator from the film Test (1971), torn with a piercing sound. We are dealing here with a “new electric force, which has the nature of a psychophysical phenomenon”, depicted by the artist in Energetic Angles.
