He appeared for an in person symposium for the public at two separate showcases, explaining each art piece which was created by being photographed in the dark using a special clear light producing drum stick, and capturing the rhythms to develop into each abstract artwork piece. Lombardo himself selected and named the dozen pieces within the collection. Each piece is numbered and signed.
