Jim Henson's live-action short RIPPLES, created in 1967 for a competition at Montreal's Expo '67, is one of several projects from that period exploring how ideas are formed and the workings of the mind. Using a variety of images rapidly cut together, the film visualizes the mind's eye of an architect as he considers his next project. An electronic track adds to the effect, underscoring the mental leaps made by the brain as it sources concepts and makes connections. This short is part of a larger collection of rare early films by one of the world's most beloved storytellers and puppeteers: Jim Henson.
