EAI commissioned artist Takeshi Murata to create a special introductory piece for EAI's 40th anniversary programming, which took place throughout 2011. Murata's creation is a stunning homage to forty years of experimentation by artists. With his intricate and lush interventions into archival footage from the 1960s and '70s (including glimpses of EAI founder Howard Wise), Murata initiates a vivid dialogue between the analog past and the digital now.
