as bill pointed out, christopher is paul sharits' son.

and bill, mike zryd, andrew lampert or federico windhausen could
clarify this comment ... several of the "locations" (installation
works) exist in different versions for standard theatrical screenings,
EPILEPTIC SEIZURE COMPARISON included. i don't know whether the single
screen version is the two screens joined end to end or if (as i
suspect) it is a restructuring of the material.
