"This music was designed to be continuously looped as a sound installation, with the intent to diffuse the tense, anxious atmosphere of an airport terminal. Eno conceived this idea while being stuck at Cologne Bonn Airport in Germany in the mid-1970s. He had to spend several hours there and was extremely annoyed by the uninspired sound atmosphere" - Wiki

Iconic Documentary Film by German born Photographer Hans Namuth on Abstract Expressionist painter Jackson Pollock shot outside Pollock's Long Island home in 1950.
The filming of this Documentary, famously brought Namuth's and Pollock's 5 month relationship to an abrupt end in November 1950, as the filming is believed to have changed Pollock's view of his own paintings. For the most part, it is thought, the contrived start, stop nature of the film making process, robbed Pollock of his rawness and spontaneity, making Pollock feel disingenuous about doing things for the camera.
It was also suggested by Art critic Jonathan Jones that by framing Pollock's work in the larger surrounding landscape, it destroyed Pollock's view that his paintings were 'boundless'. From then on, Pollock departed from his traditional style and reverted to a more figure-oriented style of painting.
