    Thanks for posting this film that I made while being the head of animation at Harvard University’s Carpenter Center For The Visual Arts, 1980-84. The work was first scripted as a poem, then all of the various tracks were recorded in a sound studio in Boston (my voice) with music by Bob Stoloff, the tracks were sound read and then the animation began all on one’s (that is 24 drawings per second). The drawings were done in the negative, filmed in negative printer stock (35mm), then projected onto more art under a tank of water that polarized the light. It is like hand drawn in light animation. It was finished just as I moved on the head the animation program at the University of the Arts (1984-92). It is originally in theatrical 35mm and can be most effectively seen in its original anamorphic cinemascope version. The IOTA foundation has all of the originals as well as the full body of my film work.

    Nice to see you here, David! The web presence of IOTA has been an inspiration for my past and future posts.
