'A' is for Revision
In 1991 Greg Lester and I created the short subject ‘A’ for the Sony Visions of America contest. The contest was a chance for young video artists to have their work displayed and reviewed by such big name actors as LeVar Burton and Johnny Depp. Unfortunately, in my haste to get the tape out by the deadline I neglected to send a return address. Subsequently the status of the short subject has remained a mystery for all of these years. Who knows? Greg and I may have won the contest and never known it!
In 2006 work has begun on the ‘A’ Reimagining Project. The original 1991 video has been run through the modern digital process. Annoying tics and humbars are being removed and the action and drama are being enhanced with state of the art sound and video equipment. We hope that this project will be finished in time for the A fifteenth anniversary celebration this Spring. We hope that Mr. Weller will not make as foolish a mistake as he did fifteen years ago.

What People Are Saying About the Plaza of the Mind
...[Plaza of the Mind] impressed me in its magnificent weirdness...this sorta je ne sais quoi that you find in interesting art... ...I mean that purely as a compliment!
Plaza of the Mind is a clinamen away from the holeopathic replay by the Android Meme of the old perceptual agon of electrically-programmed youth confronting the Gutenbergian Establishment. Irresistible Force meets Immovable Object.
