The fickle hand of fate moves its way silently through the arts. One day you’re illustrated in Brown and Keith’s New Zealand Painting: an introduction and being influenced by the “harsh New Zealand light” - and then you vanish. So it was for Michael Nicholson, who has in fact been back in New Zealand for a long time now and working away. Never one to back off the new, Nicholson, in his 90th year, is presenting a Visual Music Project at the Film Archive tonight at 5.30. The piece will include an animated video originally produced on a Scanimate in the 1980s.
