I remember these videos from school–Zbig's work was enormously influential on me and other members of my class. We vainly attempted to replicate his techniques using Amiga computers. The great TV show 'Alive From Off Center' presented a bunch of his videos in a couple episodes including the 'Steps' vid. Haven't seen these in years; thanks for posting, are there any compilations of his work available on DVD?
