Research in digital archaeology, heritage, and marginalia
This is the first movie I did (that wasn’t a joint project), back in Spring of 2006, in conjunction with a project about the glass debitage of Ishi that is held in the Hearst Museum. I’d really like to publish the paper someday, but it needs substantial work.
It’s sorta long (13 mins), so I certainly don’t expect anyone to check out the full thing, but any feedback is welcome. I probably won’t edit this one anymore because the drive that had all of my scratch files died, alas.
Maybe someday I won’t be terrified when I put my video work up on the internet, but it won’t be any time soon.
