"Study No. 14" is a technical exercise on pattern and timing. This minimalist piece aims to extend the history and tradition of Absolute Animation. There is no proper or improper response to this work.

Robert Hurst used ARP synthesizer to design a minimalist track. The sound was mixed at -6dB and at 48Khz.

I am a visual artist working in the tradition of Absolute Animation and Expanded Cinema. 

I am particularly drawn to the concept of time, and finding new ways to arrange and compose audio/visual (i.e. temporal) structures.  I am also a subject in a publication titled "Direct Theory:  Experimental Motion Pictures as Major Genre 2nd edition" by Edward S. Small and Timothy W. Johnson (University of Southern Illinois Press 2013).  

Previously, I have lectured at Emporia State University, Benedictine College, and the University of Kansas.  At present, I am employed by the Kansas City Chiefs Football Club where I work in their Information Systems department.
