The Politics of Pleasure - Papilloma Virus

A visualization of the HPV virus with music by the Art of Noise.

Here’s the official description:

This is a video that showcases early computer animation and is a precursor to the later medical scientific uses of visualization technology. This visualization was created by Stephan Meyers, Donna Cox, and Ellen Sandor.

This video demonstrates the application that utilizes the ray tracer to visualize higher dimensional Julia Sets, a technology that was developed at EVL. The voice over in the video explains the Ray Tracer technology and the mathematical complexities involved in the creation of the related visualization technology.

Artists, scientists and mathematicians have been collaborating on a variety of projects at the Electronic Visualization Laboratory for over thirty years. In 1989, a ray tracer was created to visualize higher dimensional Julia Sets, involving and contributing to advances in all three previously mentioned fields.

Take This Job and Shove It

Here’s a short clip of me playing Harry Meade, Jr. in the 1981 film Take This Job and Shove It. This was shot in 1980 in Dubuque, Iowa, so I’d be 12 years old.

My father is played by David Keith, who later went on to hang himself in An Officer and a Gentleman, and my mom was Penelope Milford, who got hit by a car in Endless Love. My sister is credited as Mary Pat Hennager, who I remember was a local Dubuque resident.
