Original animation drawing from Luma Nocturna (1974) by Sky David (1)
This is the original art that was filmed (not any reproduction) for the film Luma Nocturna (1974), by Sky David (watch a clip). According to Sky: "Luma Nocturna was the 4th and final thesis film to complete my journey at Cal Arts. It won at many film festivals and toured more that any of the films I have made. It was seen widely for an independent. It was distributed by Serious Business Co. during the 1970's and was one of its "top renters" at that time. The Canadian BBC used a section with Arthur C. Clack speaking about outer space as he 'traveled" in space and time using my film as an effect time warp. The iridescent surface colors allowed for cinematic lighting set up to make them stand out over the jet black glossy surface."

The paper is archival and perfectly preserved in its original quality. Airbrushed iridescent pigment on Acme-punched black coated paper.

Dimensions: 10.25" x 13.12"
Starting bid: $400

The best translations indicate something that today would be called a 'spaceship'."

Artwork and Photography

Portrait Collage of Adam Beckett, by Byron Werner
Byron Werner has been making unusual original art since the early 70s. Werner studied with Adam Beckett at Cal Arts in the late 70s, and was so impressed by Beckett's larger-than-life personality and artistry that he was inspired to make a portrait of Adam. Werner's folk-art, hands-on process is unique. Using gift wrapping paper and various hole punches and scissors he creates a psychedelic folk art paper mosaic, blazing with bright contrasting colors and jumbled textures. His surfaces are alive, kinetic and interactive with reflective elements and curious details. Photography sometimes does not do them full justice. Computers are not used. The meticulous detail gives evidence to the long hours of careful assembly.

Dimensions: 18" square
Starting bid: $1000

SOLD! Adam Beckett Print: 'Oscar McSpheroid, 1942'
This image is a three color print - probably a silkscreen print - although it has the detail of an intaglio etching. It was made through a number of separations, one for each color. A slight edge is visible around the nude figures and the background as Beckett was "masking" these in. The content is both figurative and abstract, sexually explicit and in contrast to the use of bright, primary colors, is somewhat grotesque due to the dominant pan-like male figure and the disfiguration of the human forms. It is truly Beckett in the mix of abstraction and figurative, psychological content, skillful drawing, and technical acuity.

Dimensions: 17 x 24"
Starting bid: $700

Special Events





An Evening of Rarities on Film at the Museum of Jurassic Technology, curated by Mark Toscano

Mark Toscano - iotaCenter Advisory Council member, preservationist, curator and specialist in the avant-garde - will be hosting a special evening of rarities on film! David Wilson at the Museum of Jurassic Technology was kind enough to grant us the use of his small, 12-seat screening space at the Museum to host this very exclusive event. For this screening, Mark will choose a selection of rare avant-garde pieces that have had little to no exposure to the public. These may come from Mark's own collection, the collections of filmmakers that he knows personally, from iotaCenter's film collection, or from the vast collection of experimental works at the Academy Film Archive. They may be short films, or outtakes from existing films, or even tests or trailers. But they will all be very special, and very unique.

This event will be treated differently from the rest of the auction items. There are only TWELVE spots open and the seats will be priced at a flat rate of $150.

TO PURCHASE: Any iotaCenter member (at any level) may write us at info@iotacenter.org to indicate their intention to purchase a seat for this event. Those names will be entered in a raffle drawing which will occur after the auction period has ended. The twelve winners will be selected, and the date of the event will be based on the availability of those twelve members.
