In this rare portrait of Fluxus founder George Maciunas, Kubota pays homage to a mentor and fellow Fluxus artist. Maciunas is also recognized as the force behind the transformation of New York's SoHo neighborhood into an artists' district. In Kubota's ongoing video diary, she observes Maciunas as he tours SoHo buildings with Fluxus artists and friends, including Nam June Paik, Barbara and Peter Moore, and Yoshi Wada. Each discusses a building in his or her own language. The second part of the tape documents Fluxus artist Ben Vautier's 1976 opening at the Guggenheim Museum in New York.
