hey jim :)

the animation works has been studies and ephemerals for image
manipulation, compression and web presentation.

also, my background, I was a painter/sculpture before and thought of
it as an extension of my work.

later, when i got my first video camera I leaped over to video.
before the works you mention I did some more experimental work

of mostly found objects and appropriation.

net cinema ?

is basically cinema that embrace the web as a primary source for
presentation.

as opposed to cinema on the net that use the web for delivery.

but I think that 'net cinema' is very broad with tons of possibilities.
