produced his first computer-animated film in 1974 at the leading edge of the "second generation" of computer-animation
artists --- those who directly followed the three visionaries of the sixties:
John Whitney, Sr., Stan Vanderbeek and Lillian Schwartz. In 1975, Cuba
collaborated with John Whitney, Sr. programming his film, Arabesque.
Cuba's subsequent computer-animated films, 3/78 (Objects and Transformations),
Two Space, and Calculated Movements, have been shown at film festivals
throughout the world and have won numerous awards. They've also been screened
at art museums (including New York's MOMA, The Whitney Museum, SFMOMA, The
Amsterdam Filmmuseum and the Isetan Museum of Art, Tokyo) and at various
conferences (including Siggraph, ISEA, Ars Electronica, and Art & Math Moscow).
Cuba received grants from the American Film Institute and The National
Endowment for the Arts and a residency at the Center for Art and Media
Technology Karlsruhe (ZKM). He has served on the juries for the Siggraph
Electronic Theater, Ars Electronica, the Montpellier Festival of Abstract
Film, and The Ann Arbor Film Festival and most recently has founded a
non-profit arts organization for the promotion and preservation of
abstraction in media art, The iotaCenter (www.iotacenter.org).
