"Iimura is at his best deconstructing and reconstructing the video apparatus. Elemental and elegant, these works confront issues of language and semiotics through forms of direct address. Incisively presented, this CD-ROM offers a new generation access to classic works of video art and theory that move through stages of repetition and ennui to the point of revelation." Peter d'Agostino, artist and professor of media arts, Temple University, Philadelphia.
