Here is a link to an interview I recently did with Mike Hoolboom for his arts history project. It includes many photographs and details on my early (1980s!) arts activities with The Funnel, a collective of experimental filmmakers and interdisciplinary artists. http://mikehoolboom.com/?p=12552

Mike’s site has many fantastic artist interviews, images, and cultural writings.
