This blog originally focused on my video work, documentation of my studio, and custom video tools in general. The site has now been extended to include a sampling of code projects and physical computing.
The term image processing, as it is used throughout this site, refers to a video art movement where artists worked with custom image processing tools to create personal videos.
The Experimental TV Center (ETC) was founded in 1971 by Ralph Hocking. It was a place where video artists would travel to spend 3 to 5 days at a time working with the assembled hybrid analog and digital image and sound processors, mostly custom constructed for and by artists. I became one of the local artists-in-residence at the ETC. I also worked for both the ETC and for Dave Jones’ Design Lab in Owego, NY, where I built many of the image processors, designed by Jones and installed at the ETC.
