Skin Stories VHS
Skin Stories explores the transformative power of an art inscribed on the body - as a way to honor the past, to explore ones inner self, and to preserve a culture for the future. Skin Stories is an anthology of stories and stunning images gathered from the hot spots of Pacific tattoo: From the steaming landscape of Rotorua in New Zealand to the vibrant gathering of the first international tattoo convention in Apia, Samoa; from the terraced, lush taro fields of maui to the golden beaches of O'ahu and California.

The Art & Vision of James Hubbell VHS
San Diego artist and architectural designer James Hubbell believes "architecture's really sculpture you can live in." Hubbell's work and his artistic philosophy are featured in the film The Art & Vision of James Hubbell. The camera explores the free-form buildings, stained glass and sculpture that make up Hubbell's home and studio compound in the hills. The artist reveals his thoughts about modern urban architecture, human scale and how his philosophy differs from that of most traditional architects. "I see myself first of all as a human being, secondly as someone who is in love with life, and next, probably, as a sculptor... When I was a kid, I really didn't understand adults very well, but I felt at home with nature. So it's probably been nature that's influenced both my life and work." The artist's statement that he doesn't "feel at all separated from nature" echoes in the mind of the viewer as Jim Hubbell walks among the outsized steel and concrete buildings of downtown San Diego, looking suddenly like a foreign visitor to an alien land.
