Selected Works I exemplifies Buckner's use of image-processing techniques to create dynamic visual expressions that manifest heightened states of consciousness and transform the electronic into the organic. In Hearts, vibrant heart-like forms pulsate with intense color and rhythm over a hallucinatory, shifting landscape. Eerie transformations of human and animal forms, rendered nearly abstract through image-keying, resonate with visual power in Heads. Layered electronic constructions acquire symbolic meaning in Millennia.
