    I remember finding this while researching Russian Constructivism for my Graphic Design History course in 2009 and presenting it as an example of how the art could be interpreted as moving. Since then, every once in a while, I would search for this video again so I could watch it but I couldn't find it... really happy I finally found it today! Amazing work!

    Liked how the construtivist art, with simple lines, builds (literally! lol) the notion of the city: cars, towers, buildings, people anxious, windows, eyes! Babel Tower of Babilonia!
