I have a dim memory of him at SFAI in 1992 or 1993. A tall, bearded
fellow with a floppy brimmed hat and sandals. He thoroughly thrashed me
at chess without much effort. His one film that I recall was called
something like 'I -- Venus, Dog of this Light". Reminded me of
Brakhage's Arabics, Roman Numerals, Egyptians, etc. It was soft-focus,
abstracted if not totally abstract and delicate. Some of the graduate
students (harshly but affectionately) dubbed him "Stan the younger".
