Screening Circle adapts the idea of the quilting circle into an online forum for producing motion graphics. Visitors to the site can enter a drawing area to compose loops of graphics. The results are on view instantaneously and archived for posterity.

21st c. earthenware   Aquanode 2006 one of a series of 21st-century Earth Art projects from Transnational Temps was realized in August, 2006, on the coast of western Turkey.
