Len Lye (1901-1980) was born in New Zealand. In 1926, he moved to London and joined the Seven and Five Society, whose members included Ben Nicolson and Henry Moore. His first animated film was Tusalava (1928) and he subsequently worked with the GPO Film Unit and the Shell Film Unit to make a series of films, which through experimentation with abstract forms, put him at the vanguard of the medium. Lye moved to New York in 1944.
