I am an intermedia artist. In 2015 I started Intermedia Projects Inc. The URL for our website is https://intermediaprojects.org/ I worked on visualizing extant music compositions over a period of 25 years. I am now interested in working on visualization projects of things other than extant musical compositions; I work in collaborations with other scientists and artists using my skills as a visualizer. I also wrote my dissertation on conceptual metaphor and blending theories. I discovered that these theories describe how I developed mapping systems over the years.
