2010-2015 | James Bay Ethnographic Resource | Videographer

This project contributes to the visual ethnographic and historical record of four James Bay Cree Communities in northern Quebec, Canada. It includes a selection of photographs from 2800 photographs taken by George Legrady in (Fort George, Wemindji, Eastmain and Waskaganish) in the summer of 1973. The collection also features photographs by Mary B Georgekish, Beverly Mayappo, Miklos Legrady, and anonymous photographers. The intent is to provide access to the images to the Cree and academic research communities to advance historical preservation and ethnographic research. This online cultural atlas is realized in collaboration with McGill University, Department of Anthropology, with funding from the National Science Foundation grant and the Robert W. Deutsch Foundation.

2015 | Konrad Zuse writing on computers and the arts

Konrad Zuse is known for designing the first high-level programming language called Plankalkül and also for creating the first programmable binary computer in 1942. However, his ideas and advanced projections about the potential of computer-aided art are still unknown among many new media researchers and media archaeologists. In this paper we argue that the artistic use of Zuse’s machines was not a coincidence but rather a part of Zuse’s original intent when he designed the Graphomat Z64, one of the first flatbed drawing machines available. Collaboration with professor Esteban Garcia, Purdue University.
