This article focuses on a three-minute sequence of Pat O’Neil’s 1976 film Sidewinder’s Delta in order to develop a general understanding of the artist’s work. Themes discussed include Pat O’Neill’s embrace of paradox, his iconoclasm, his investigations of formal features of cinematic representation and the resonances of his work with other artists, both recent and classical. These issues characterize O’Neill’s entire oeuvre, but in this article, examples are taken only from works made between 1972 and 2002.
