Skull v2

Date created: 1994
Medium: Computer graphic



Skull v2 was created from the interpenetration of two found digital objects, a human skull and a deer's head. This post-Beuysian pagan-effigy is reminiscent of the protagonist in my early oil painting called Napoleonic Seal, 1979. The original version of this image, Skull v1 was first shown in August 1994 at the Sam Francis Gallery at the Crossroads School in Santa Monica, California in an exhibition called Digital L.A. This version of Skull (v2) had its public debut in NYC in August 1996. In September 2001 Skull v2 was reproduced on the cover of LEONARDO (Journal of the International Society of Arts, Sciences and Technology) Volume 34 Number 4.
