Nuvo Japonica as a body of work consisting of 2D images was originally shown at the Joan Whitney Payson Museum of Art in Portland, Maine, in 1989. Curator Judith Sobol thought the work was highly innovative at the time. The imagery was created on unique Digital/Video systems located institutions: Experimental TV Center in Owego, New York and Film/Video Arts Studio in New York City. The Commodore Amiga Computer was interfaced into the "system" which added digital video capabilities to analog computers. The Fairlight Computer from Australia added unique Digital Effects along with music synthesizer to effect the Digital images. _As for the Art itself, the year 1989 was a time of conflict in the chip market between the United States and Japan. My reaction was to create a series of artworks which fused these two cultures together. - "American classic iconography with Japanese tradition." The two made an interesting combination. A few weeks ago I was given the Globus Lifetime Acheivement Award Fellowship and went to Japan. This short film is an artistic rendition of my experience and an affirmation to what I created a quarter of a century ago.
