A New Home

The image above is from my documentation of the Topological Slide project –which I featured on my first foray into creating a website way back in the nineties (before CSS).

Those pages were hosted on CalArts’ first external web service which we created on the CalArts Computer Animation Lab server in 1994.  That server was apparently compromised by a script kiddie attack in 2011 and taken down as a security precaution.  CalArts IT used this event as a rationale for the elimination of all web servers on the CalArts network except those under their direct control.  Some of the files once available on the individual school servers (such as the History of the CalArts Computer Animation Lab) can be found in the archives of the Wayback Machine.

I’ve set up this wordpress based website and migrated a few of the most essential files from the shuttered  http://emsh.calarts.edu  site in order to restore their availability (more will be added later).  I’ve also taken this opportunity to combine the functions of what had been my separate artist’s web site and educator’s web site into this one.

Over the years I have added content (much of it course related) and plan on continuing to do so.

In the summer of 2015 I returned to documentation of the Topological Slide project with some preliminary work on a video demonstrating particular aspects of the slide experience.
