Thanks, I liked the adventure more than anything else. Second was the opportunity to
increase digital art awareness in India. Also helped "create" a baby - now at
Calcutta's server, there's "Calcutta Cyberart Webmuseum" to carry on!
Your interest and common energies spark this idea at the turn of the millennium-
How about VAL sponsoring and bringing this India international digital show to NY at
I would help cosponsor it, as a dentist.
The show looks to be booked for 3 more Indian cities (received national media attention),
then possibly Bangkok and hopefully Milan, Italy by late summer. Trying to take it around
the world in a suitcase. You can see the works are small but hung well.
If interested, surprise my super volunteer in India, Shuhbojoy Mitra. I would support such
a scheduling and this would get VAL into some world limelight around the world as each
destination will be highlighted at the next site and online.
I did tell him when I was there that I would try to "get" NY. His Indian eyes
lit up as young aspiring artist. Didn't realize this HOPE would come in the shape and form
of VAL and Judith Wray!
I would want to invite at least 10 more artists into the show by the time it hits NYC.
All new countries as I want this to be a symbol of world peace besides displaying the New
art from the Web. The dentist is also publishing "Cyberart - Emerging Art From the
Internet" due out in 2000 and I would love to come and do autographs and donate
proceeds to VAL of books sold at your opening.
If possible we may link up earlier in the year as my work is due to be used for a new
restaurant in Manhatten in the spring. Need to update exact dates by source.
I think I'm ready to visit NYC again. Might have to go back to India to support the Bombay
show and I think I'll be invited for a solo in Thailand in 2000. But don't look forward to
going back thata way.... talk about retro.
Make your decision and I'll get the let's go for it or rejection from shubho.
Hey, almost 2000 here too and so,
without any further adue,
HAPPY NEW MILLENNIUM TO YOU AND YOURS!!!!!!
LOVE AND PEACE, YUP DID SOME WORK WITH GREENPEACE,
Pygoya (aka Dr. Rodney Chang da dentist)

The lst good news for the Millennium from Judy of NY!
Actually the last of the 20th, still the 31st here, close to noon.
Will plan on it. Please give a lovely Happy New Year with your decision to Shubhojoy Mitra
in Calcutta, firstname.lastname@example.org You will find him a wonderful young man to work with
on a project. My vote of confidence for following through on details in timely manner.
Let's do it!!!! See you in person in 2000.
Got wonderful neice who just moved to Manhattan as hairstylist. Home for the holidays, was
blond now red-red metallic. Cool for her young Asian face. She can be our helper for the
show on your end.
Will tell her the good news at tonights NY Eve party!
Had my cupS of coffee.
A L O H A,
Rodney the Pygoyan

I e mailed your connection in India last night, copying excerpts from
your letter to try and introduce myself....we are on our
way..question..are India and Indonesia on freindly terms?
comment.. the Lincoln center space is 80 ft long with 65 ft of useable
wall space on one side. Another 20 ft wide wall space wide, then the
long side has three usable white pillars, 4 ft wide..in beteen is glass
which actually has a parking lot on the other side..on the bright side
this is where all the VIPs park, such as presidents when they come to
Lincoln Center!! so it isn't really so bad!!
if you bring up the URL below and scroll down you can see the space
pretty well..it's a good size..the ceiling is 10ft high..there are
constraints..no plugging anything in!! no sticking anything to the
walls, or nailing anything..we hang with fishing line or wire from s
hooks down from a slender, un noticable rod along the top of the wall.
that's it for now.

good idea if his work included in Lincoln show and thereby have a bridge between Indians
there and in Calcutta. Would forward his email to Calcutta boss.
