2003 Designing digital stereoscopic 3-D projected sets for the ballet The Bell Witch to premiere in October '03 with the Nashville Ballet, jointly with the Nashville Chamber Orchestra.

2003 Began teaching a graduate level course in Stereoscopic 3-D at The School of Visual Arts as part of the MFA program in Computer Art.

2002 Designed the set for the ballet The Empty Cup at the Kaatsbaan International Dance Center, starring ballerina Martine van Hamel. Choreography by Ann Marie DeAngelo. Music by Conni Ellisor.

2001 Created and presented a new digital 3-D projected show at the American Museum of Natural History as part of a series honoring the first anniversary of the new Rose Center/Hayden Planetarium. This show travels and was given at the Exploratorium and other venues later that year. It features astronomy-related stereoscopic images from the dawn of photography through the generations of NASA imaging.

This show led into a collaboration with the museum on the Congo portion of the Digital Library Project in which images from the museum's 1909-14 Belgian Congo Expedition were made into digital anaglyphs for the museum's web site.

2000 Installed a 3-D sculpture shadow room at the new Sony ExploraScience museum in Beijing. While in China, did a lot of 3-D photography that is now part of my 3-D lecture presentations.

1996-7 Created and installed the piece proFOUND weDDDings at the Alternative Museum, NYC, as part of the Luminous Image show. The piece made use of 3-D wedding photography from the 1950's adapted into digital multimedia.

1995-6 Designed and installed a large mural for the 28th Street #6-Train subway station as part of the MTA Arts for Transit program. The mural was built into glass blocks in which the curvature of the glass inside the block helps to create a 3-D illusion and the appearance of motion. Also produced a Virtual Reality walk-through of the station.

1995 Created the 3-D illustrations for the book Virtual Reality (H. P. Newquist, Scholastic Publications, 1995) Also, during that decade, created 3-D illustrations for several other books for Kodansha, Cadence Books and Klutz Press as well as a 3-D poster included in Discover Magazine.

1994 Wrote the chapter on 3-D television for the American Cinematographer Video Manual (ASC Press).

1993 Colaborated with director Wayne Isham to create the 3-D music video Psycho Love for the band Skid Row.

1989-90 Directed three, 3-D music videos for The Rolling Stones during their Steel Wheels tour. The videos were broadcast over the Fox Network in June 1990 as the centerpiece of a prime-time 'Stones special.

1988 Consultant to Fox Television for the 3-D broadcast of the 100th Annual Tournament of Roses Parade. Billed as "The World's first live 3-D event telecast". Also appeared live on the pre-parade broadcast to speak about the 3-D.

1987 Held an appointment as Visiting Scholar at the Spatial Imaging Group of the MIT MediaLab. This was a joint project with the New York Hall of Science as part of their Realm of the Atom group of exhibits. The product of that collaboration was the hologram One Particular Wave, on permanent exhibition at the Hall of Science. The hologram illustrates the artist's conception of how light can exist as both a wave and a particle.

1985 Exhibited the anaglyph print series Artistic, Aesthetic and Poetic Tastes of the Japanese at the Museum of Holography, N.Y.C.. This was one of several showings at MoH and prints from that series have been on exhibit at various museums from 1975 to the present.

1983 Provided my 3-D prints and photographs to a show at The Massachusetts Institute of Technology organized by Dr. Stephen Benton as part of efforts leading to the formation of the MIT MediaLab and its Spatial Imaging Group.

1982-3 Designed the set for Mabou Mines' world premiere of Samuel Beckett's Company at the Public Theater/New York Shakespeare Festival. The set utilized both optical and binaural acoustic illusions that worked with an original score by Philip Glass. The set won two design awards and the production toured for several years.

1982 Artist-in-Residence at the Mid-America Museum, Hot Springs, Arkansas. Produced a five-piece stereoscopic mural based on aerial photography of the region. This was followed by a show of the project at the Manhattan Laboratory Museum, N.Y.C..

1981 Designed multimedia projections for the original production of Len Jenkin's Dark Ride at the Soho Repertory Theater, NYC. Actors included Will Patton, JoAnne Akalaitis, John Nesci and Betty LaRoe.

1980 Created and presented performance pieces including Changes and/in the Lunar Orbit featuring 3-D projections with readings and live musicians. These performance evenings were given at the Museum of Holography, N.Y.C. and on a barge in the Hudson River: The Floating Foundation of Photography.

1979 Exhibited my stereoscopic prints and environments in Tokyo, Japan as part of a large Art/Science show produced by the Asahi Shimbun newspaper group. The show toured Japan and, while in that country, I gave various lecture/presentations at Japanese art schools and produced a large body of stereoscopic imagery.

1977 Artist-in-Residence at the Exploratorium, San Francisco, creating Professor Pulfrich's Universe, an environment in which rotating sculptures cast 3-D shadows that reverse and turn inside out. That original installation is still a popular exhibit with a fresh makeover and re-opening in 2000. I've been creating new incarnations of that piece at museums worldwide, including: IBM Gallery, NYC, 1986; New York Hall of Science, 1986; Museum of the Japan Science Foundation, Tokyo, 1989; Strong Museum, Rochester, NY, 1993; Sony ExploraScience, Beijing, 2000.

1969-89 Taught Photo-Silkscreen and Advanced Printmaking workshops at The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science & Art, N.Y.C.. Awarded rank of Associate Professor of Art (Adjunct) in 1979.

1969-89 Taught Photo-Silkscreen workshops for The New School for Social Research, N.Y.C..

1969-71 Taught Photo-Silkscreen and Multimedia Prntmaking workshops at the School of Visual Art, N.Y.C.. (Left SVA after accepting a promotion at Cooper Union to Assistant Professor and Coordinator of Printmaking, with additional classes)

1966-69 Set up and ran Process Systems, my studio for Photo Silkscreen and also served as master printer at Chyron Press. During this period, in addition to my own art, I printed editions for Helen Frankenthaller, Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, Marisol, Robert Indiana, Alan D'Arcangelo, Red Grooms, Leo Castelli Gallery, Tibor de Nagy Gallery, The Paris Review and others.

1965 Studied electronic music composition with Vladimir Ussachevsky at the Columbia-Princeton Electronic Music Center at Columbia University. Towards the end of that year I made the decision to switch from music to visual art as my primary focus.
