A rusty pointed tool, a porcelain shard, an old bottle - are they connected? A pack of etched plates, a brass bar bearing Spanish words, and a canister of woolens - remains of a fated mission in the... More > 18th Century that might have changed history. Ten souls on an island are drawn into a search for an uncharted ship. Whatever happened? It must have been broken up by a powerful force because the broken remains are small. There is a legend of a floating longhouse, with trees and blankets flying vanished under a great wave. Four strange women converge and show interest, offering hints as to what artifacts lay under water and mud. Friendships flower, new relationships lead to discoveries of historical events and things about themselves. A curmudgeon professor knows they are hunting for: a rumored emerald, the size of an ostrich egg. They organize a search. It’s not the emerald the professor wants; more important is a lost cargo of instruments that would have changed world history if they had made it to China.< Less

On a pleasant day, on a wooded island not far from Seattle, a troop of amateur geologists trudged across a tall grassy meadow with a purpose: find a lost culture which was completely devoted to... More > television. Led by a self-appointed, charismatic videophile, “Dr. Chew,” they unearthed the remains of a 15,000-year old treasure of artifacts, identified, tagged, and dutifully recorded details about them. C. T. Chew, an artist, conceived the expedition as an art “happening.” Over thirty years later, his “Video Dig” is the focus of an exhibition proposed by Bill Ritchie, who was at the site. Now Bill wants to show the “Video Dig” plus many videos that vivified his years as a media arts professor. In this anthology he shares his musings, the soul of the exhibit, “Video Dig Reloaded.” The reader is sure to find it enlightening - a must for anyone curious about northwest schools of art or, which is a more likely lesson, how video figured in the development of a few artists’ careers started at the UW in the 1970s.< Less
