Artist Statement:


    I worked at Digital Effects, the first 3D computer animation company in New York City, until its bankruptcy in 1985.  Jeanne Mara’s partner, Steve Legensky, purchased equipment for Intelligent Light at the Digital Effects auction.

    When SIGGRAPH announced that the 1986 Art Show would be a Retrospective, I half-jokingly mused aloud about framing my Digital Effects jacket; the concept evolved to include a coat rack with an auction ticket.

    I was surprised the piece was accepted into the show, and recall a telephone conversation with the 1986 Art Show Chair, Patric Prince, who pressed me for a title — and used my reply verbatim.
