Throwback: 1986 “Abstract video art created in 1986 for Expo ’86 in Vancouver, BC. Video by John Sanborn and Dean Winkler. Music by Daniel Lentz” Great to see Dean Winkler has a Youtube channel. He just uploaded something new three days ago. No idea where/when I originally saw this but I remember having Amiga envy somewhere around that time, so that probably dates it right there.

That was so much fun to watch! I have no idea where I saw the original. I’m 45 now, so I’d have been in my mid-teens then, New jersey. Good chance it showed up on our public broadcasting or perhaps HBO but I just remember thinking, “Wow, never saw something like this before!” – and not long after that having Amiga envy. [I had a Tandy Color Computer 2]. But then I got a PC in 1989 with a 300 bps modem.. so this ‘internet’ thing seemed to take over instead for me. No regrets, although I still wanted that Amiga to be able to even *think* of doing stuff with video. You were so far ahead!
