MOUNTAIN MISTS The morning mists swirling in from the mountains in Vermont inspired both
my process animation and my 1977 animation, VERMONT ETUDE

(Vol 0 Evolution) 2 Point to Line to Plane button.png

BEES AND STARS  Watching my bees at sunrise and the stars at night led me to a natural expression of Kandinsky’s “Point and Line to Plane” in my own POINT in 1984.

CUBIC VARIATIONS  My early fascination with cubic figures and their environments culminated
in the transforming cubic worlds of ROBOT (1977) and the films beyond.

(Vol 0 Evolution) 4 Pixels button.png

PIXELS  From my initial drawings within the pixels of graph paper in the early 70s, I eventually
created my personal transforming graph paper in PIXEL (1987).

(Vol 0 Evolution) 5 Wood Paintings & Dryads button.png

WOOD GRAIN PAINTINGS  Moving on from my 70s paintings of figures within the grain of
wood, I animated my fantasies of the mythical tree-nymphs in DRYADS (1988).

(Vol 0 Evolution) 6 Black Lines button.png

BLACK LINE DRAWINGS  I was fascinated with what my pen could do within the juncture of
cursive writing and the human figure, and I made DISSIPATIVE DIALOGUES in 1982.

SCULPTURE TO ANIMATED HOLOGRAMS  I had always wanted to find a way to move and
transform my early sculpture, and I got my chance in 1978 with my first animated hologram,
OEDIPUS AT COLONUS.
