Tom Dewitt, born in 1944, apprenticed under Stan Vanderbeek in 1965. He collaborated with Scott Bartlett on light shows collected into the film OffOn (1967), arguably the first film to use video as an art form. Fall (1971) was made equally using film and video techniques with a ratio of one quarter video, one quarter film and half being of both. Dewitt works in both art and science. He has been named Fellow of the Guggenheim and National Science Foundations, NASA, and the National Endowment for the Arts. He presently is working on the designs of microscopes and telescopes.
