The piece is based on the eponymous vector-based digital drawing from the artist's Metagraph series. "Holism" was originally drawn in NYC's East Village in 1999 on a Mac 8600 using a Wacom tablet in Illustrator 8. It was the first work that the artist produced as a large-scale digital monoprint on canvas. The drawing has been reborn as an audiovisual NFT 22 years later using Adobe Animate and Premiere. The original audio track, mixed in Audition, collages ambient recordings captured by the artist in the middle of the night at his childhood home in Southampton, New York and at his current home in Vermont.
