Abstract:

Taking inspiration from science and technology as well as art history, Anna Campbell Bliss developed a style that synthesized many of the movements of early 20th-century modernism. This film traces the broad spectrum of Bliss's life and work, ranging from the influences of her early childhood and her groundbreaking career as a Harvard-trained architect to her emergence as a cutting-edge artist fusing a wide range of elements: mathematics, computers, printmaking, calligraphy, and more. Featuring interviews with Bliss and her husband, Robert, as well as with other notable art world professionals, the documentary shows how Bliss's career was shaped by her studies with Bauhaus exponents Walter Gropius and Gyorgy Kepes, and how associations with Josef Albers, R. Buckminster Fuller, and other figures were also crucial. In addition, the film touches on what may have been Bliss's greatest personal challenge - a period, thankfully temporary, in which cataracts threatened to destroy her eyesight.
