We combined the animation of the Martian Lander, Curiosity, with actual footage from the craft, as it lands on Mars:

Starting this Friday, the illustrious Digibarn will present the history of the Macintosh computer, with an exhibit at the MAH (Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History).  Dr. Bruce Damer gives us a preview..

Listen to Dr. Damer now..

Also of interest this week is the Shady Shakespeare’s performance of Pericles, a brilliantly original, funny, yet gripping performance of the master’s classic play.  Check it out by all means and though we were not allowed to film the play itself, we do have a video preview of the preshow, the Shady Shakespeare cast doing the Time Warp!   

Shady Shakespeare Company does the Time Warp!


We have also just finished at edit of a performance at Heart Kiss 2012 of the Durian Sex Cult, a new dance troupe in Santa Cruz.  In the following piece, 

 “The supreme Shiva is seduced by the divine Shakti with a little help from the magical powers of  the Durian fruit..”

Shiva is played by Santa Cruz’s own Corey Pooley



Nina Simon Museum of Art and History director, on Future of Museums.


Listen Now to Nina Simon

 How will internationally renowned museum dynamo Nina Simon take our Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History into the future?

Just what are her ideas for making a brick and mortar museum more dynamic and compelling, when more and more we get our history and art online?  How can museums encourage interactivity and human interaction rather than squelch it?

And just what are museums 2.0? 

Found out in this episode of the Dr. Future Show with Nina Simon, the new director of our downtown Museum of Art and History!
