  The gift of Pain The Gift of Pain - Transforming Hurt Into Healing (Penguin Books)

"Pain comes in many forms: physical, emotional, mental,
spiritual. It is diligently avoided by most of us, even at the
risk of sacrificing the quality of our lives. But pain can (and
should) be a catalyst for change, a
touchstone of all spiritual
, a doorway through which we travel on our journey
from suffering to joy

    The Videola

The Videola was a video sculpture/installation piece exhibited at the San Francisco Museum of Modern art in November, 1973 and in 2000 at the Berkeley Museum of Art. It was fabricated utilizing large kaleidoscope mirrors configured to produce the illusion of a large sphere of moving video imagery suspended in black space.  The exhibit consisted of 6 one hour pre-recorded programs of original video/audio creations by Don Hallock, Stephen Beck and William Gwin, as well as several improvised Videola concerts by Stephen Beck and Don Hallock.

The National Center for Experiments in Television Web Site

The 'National Center' in San Francisco was created to explore broader possibilities for the video medium than were being realized in conventional broadcast television.  Ultimately, NCET became one of the major innovative developers of video art forms during the 1960s and '70s.  The 'NCET style' (as it became known) was as challenging as it was unique.



TORUS - an art gallery without walls....

TORUS is an on-line art gallery featuring works by Hawaii based artists. This site doesn't represent a gallery, it is one.  The intent is to offer engaging, oftentimes challenging, meaningful works. Though the artists showing here live and ply their trade in Hawaii, the work we present is not geared toward a tourist market, nor is it decorator material. These pieces demand more than just a superficial glance. Torus Gallery seeks to offer work the serious art enthusiast can find rewarding.
