Mosaic artist Jeffrey Bale, described by the New York Times as a ‘rock star’, transformed a former Portland crack house into a stone art paradise, an urban sanctuary and bird haven. Crack House, edited in camera, is a cosmic burst of color and sound created to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the introduction of Super 8 film.

Rearing Anartia and Sulfur Butterflies are 8-16mm films documenting the work of lepidopterist Robert Silberglied in the 1970s. Rearing Anartia features Silberglied and entomologist Annette Aiello's field research at the Barro Colorado Island field station in Panama. Colias features Silberglied and Chip Taylor conducting research in southwest Arizona. Silberglied's untimely death in a plane crash left behind an undiscovered body of work, including these two films. These films are an early testimony of how creative scientists intended to communicate their passion for the study of nature to broad audiences.
