I use the Calder CIRCUS FILM as an introduction for my Technology
students. It is also a wonderful way for teachers to see the element
of play which can still exist within the Adult (if they are free
enough to allow the child to surface now and again)
The simple mechanics of the animals are an inspiration to children..
My students(adults) loved it.
I picked up a book of Calders Drawing at a second hand book show a
few years ago.. Drawings done in 1926 The original price was $1 US.
It cost me $4 AU. (Which is by the current exchange rate about $7.50
It is a valuable possession of mine now.
