About Carole Fuller-Schwab: Carole is one of those movers-and-shakers of the Seattle Art Scene starting in the 1970s, and had key roles with the 9-1-1 Media Art Center. Carole and Evan Schwab live on Bainbridge Island. Checking LinkedIn shows that Carole is Executive Producer of Acts of Witness, LLC which, along with Annie Grosshans, produced the Indie film.
Artist's Comment: Spanning two years of development and about 75 impressions, Little Spaceship Crash was the seed for a larger work. These came out of the movie, Planet of the Apes. I like to tell the story about the path flown by the helicopter filming it, and then my entry into computers graphics and how I learned the X-Y-Z of IT. This print was test of methods I would need for a larger version, then the tests resulted in an edition that stood on its own.
