He describes his work process, which always begins with shooting a sacred place. He talks about his collaboration with Tom DeFanti for computer animation. Sandin sees his image processing machine as a tool to help people learn about images. He talks about his commitment to keep information about the image processor as an oral tradition instead of a written tradition. He feels that the lack of explanation of the machine keeps it situated as a medium for experimentation. Audio is a little muddy.
