Selected Works fuses live action with highly sophisticated computer-generated imagery. Set to music by composer Philip Glass, Act III features rapidly spiralling and multiplying three-dimensional forms that echo the repetitive strains and vital energy of Glass' music. Commissioned by the Computer Museum in Boston, Renaissance transforms the skyline of Boston Harbor into a futuristic landscape through a virtuosic display of computer Paintbox and digital effects. Luminare, which was commissioned by Expo '86 in Vancouver, British Columbia, combines three-dimensional computer graphics with dance in a journey through the history of art.
