Winter in Miami 2005 is Kubota's touching tribute to her husband, artist Nam June Paik, who died at their home in Miami in January 2006. This intimate piece features previously unreleased sound recordings of Paik at the piano in his New York home in 2005, playing haunting compositions that he wrote in 1945, when he was thirteen years old. Layered footage of Kubota and Paik, sitting together in Miami in the winter before his death, takes on the resonance of memory. Kubota premiered this work at a tribute to Paik at the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris in October 2006.
