            Green Thing has two mouths and three eyes but five pairs of talented hands created this video. The sublime penning hands of Andrew Rae who designed the brilliant characters; the subtle 12-frames-per-second hands of Tom Baker who created the deft animation as well as the veggie girlfriend and the driving temptress;the skilled motion graphics hands of Oliver Smith who created the moving logo at the end; the ten tinkling fingers of Marc Folan who created "Kind of Green," the suave Green Thing theme; and the laid back vocal talents of Aaron Willmer who used both his hands to hold the script. Huge thanks to them all.

              Water in the Anthropocene is a 3-minute film charting the global impact of humans on the water cycle. Evidence is growing that our global footprint is now so significant we have driven Earth into a new geological epoch — the Anthropocene. Human activities such as damming and agriculture are changing the global water cycle in significant ways. The data visualisation was commissioned by the Global Water Systems Project for a major international conference (Water in the Anthropocene, Bonn, Germany, 21-24 May, 2013). http://conference2013.gwsp.org As datasets build upon one another, the film charts Earth's changing global water cycle, why it is changing, and what this means for the future. The vertical spikes that appear in the film represent the 48,000 large dams that have been built. The film was produced by Globaïa and the International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme. www.globaia.org // www.igbp.net The film is part of the first website on the concept of humans as a geological force, www.anthropocene.info Datasets: - Base map: NASA, Natural Earth, Globaïa - Total precipitation: GEOS-5 — http://svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/vis/a030000/a030000/a030017/index.html - Ocean currents: OSCAR — http://svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/vis/a000000/a003900/a003958/index.html - Dams & Reservoir capacity: GRanD — http://sedac.ciesin.columbia.edu/data/set/grand-v1-dams-rev01 - Cities: VIIRS 2012 — http://www.ngdc.noaa.gov/dmsp/download.html - Cropland (North America): Agriculture Lands 2000 — http://www.earthstat.org - Anthroposphere: Several sources, see Cartography of the Anthropocene on Globaïa's website — http://www.globaia.org - Sea ice: Sea Ice for Science on a Sphere — http://svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/vis/a000000/a003500/a003579/index.html - Rivers: NGIA vMAP — http://geoengine.nga.mil/geospatial/SW_TOOLS/NIMAMUSE/webinter/vmap0_legend.html - Lakes: Global Lakes and Wetlands Database — http://gcmd.nasa.gov/records/GCMD_GLWD.html - Human Water Security Index: Adjusted HWS Threat — http://www.riverthreat.net Music Earlyguard — http://earlyguard.bandcamp.com Jana Winderen — http://www.janawinderen.com Produced for the Global Water Systems Project (GWSP) GWSP is sponsored by: DIVERSITAS International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme International Human Dimensions Programme World Climate Research Programme Scientific sponsors of the Welcome to the Anthropocene website: CSIRO International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme Stockholm Resilience Centre Future Earth

                    Schlafly Beer is not only the best tasting craft beer in the St. Louis region, it is also a unique community resource. Hear from the the people who make it all happen. This short documentary was made for a grad school class over the summer of 2008. It was shot on whatever cameras Webster University would loan me and an hv30 I borrowed from work. Enjoy!

                      Official selection, onedotzero Terrain '09: www.onedotzero.com The Technocrat Retrofit of London is a speculative architecture-fiction project, exploring the architectural opportunities afforded by a post-capitalist economy. It occurs circa 2050, and marks a return to the community driven sustainable way of living, with the help of technology. The stock market has crashed and the pound has moved into hyper-inflation. Banks are deserted. The mayor of London negotiates with a powerless central government to transform the square mile into a contained self-sufficient Technocratic state. The resulting architecture is a series of inter-connected artifacts grafted on to the surface of existing buildings. These contain the equipment to allow the transformation of the defunct financial edifices into link centres for sustainable agriculture and production.
