S:TREAM:S:S:ECTION:S:ECTION:S:S:ECTIONED (1968-70, 41 min, 16mm. Preserved by Anthology Film Archives.) "Yes, S:S:S:S:S:S is beautiful. The successive scratchings of the stream-image film is very powerful vandalism. The film is a very complete organism with all the possible levels really recognized." –Michael Snow COLOR SOUND FRAMES (1974, 26 min, 16mm. Preserved by Anthology Film Archives.) "A film in which Sharits sums up his researches in the area of film strip (in opposition to the individual frames). The film strips move horizontally and vertically; two strips move simultaneously in opposite directions; variations in color; action of sprocket-holes. Very methodically and scientifically he covers the area. […] COLOR SOUND FRAMES advances one area of cinema or one area of researches in cinema (call it art if you wish) to a new climax, to a new peak: his exploration is so total, so perfect." –Jonas Mekas, VILLAGE VOICE Total running time: ca. 70 min.
