Nowever Art and Photo Albums
Some of these will be part of future exhibitions. Most have been transformed on the computer; a few are almost natural, taking advantage of Venice's reflections and textures. For a large selection of Venice natural reflections and textures see the Picasa albums.
Old and worn-looking photos are a new passion of mine. It just makes sense!
Human figures, some transformed from antique "French postcards" (i.e., nudes) and some (in a similar risque spirit) made completely on the computer using various programs.
A kind of casual reflexive diversion I indulge in now and then.
Interesting designs I come up with every so often.People (and sometimes things) that get incidentally photographed in the background or near a main subject. The new, accidental subject is then enlarged and transformed. (These are mostly quick recreational diversions.)
This is a place for things that I can't seem to categorize. Maybe new categories will come from it. (There seems to be a lot of portraits to start off with.)
Little things I put together. I kept them small for easy loading (in the days when the Internet was real slow).
A Few Selections:
2) Interview With Me About The Nature Of "Nowever Then" (Considerations Which Lead To Stunning Philosophic Consequences) (PDF)
3) The First Chapter (92 pages) of "My Town," part of my completed 800-page prose poem novel. (A small portion of this chapter was previously published in "Under a Gull's Wing," a book of New Jersey poetry. Down the Shore Publishing, 1996.) (PDF) (NEW)
4) "At Home in the Italian Alps" or Where I Am Living At Present. Highly illustrated. (PDF)

Nowever Then Laboratories:
Hear the Nowever Then Theme 784KB (Speakers recommended)
In MP3 format. I composed this in the late 1970s for classical guitar.I later orchestrated it for computer instruments. Too bad the quality isn't great (and I don't feel like re-doing it).
