His brother might be able to help. In the last three years the Sharits
family worked with Steina and Woody Vasulka to produce a major exhibition at
ZKM about the Buffalo scene in general and Sharits in particular. I believe
Michael Zyrd reviewed it on FRAMEWORKS.

The running times given by the various distributors don't necessarily mean
anything. Paul conceived many of his films as raw materials for various
kinds of projection configurations, loops, and frame rates. For example,
"Epileptic Seizure Comparison" is listed as 34 minutes, but it only runs 16
minutes because it's divided in two channels projected vertically: 16 x 16 =
34. Go to "About Us" and click on
Christopher Sharits.
