Free online video / The Hidden Story of Camouflage

I was so fortunate to appear in this wonderful film—titled RAZZLE DAZZLE: The Hidden Story of Camouflage—produced in Australia in 2019. It was fascinating to be interviewed for it, and to spend an extended time in Australia. It's now available online as a free documentary here

I am now in process of producing my own series of shorter videos on related subjects. Here is my very first attempt, as posted on YouTube. I'm working on my second today.

nature, art and camouflage / duplicitous uses of color

Now available online is a new 32-minute documentary video titled NATURE, ART AND CAMOUFLAGE: Duplicitous Uses of Color at <>. It is a richly illustrated overview of four kinds of camouflage (blending, countershading, mimicry, and disruption), with examples of their common occurrence in nature, as well as their adoption as wartime deception strategies. A central aspect of the film is the involvement of artists in studies of both military and zoological camouflage, especially Abbott H. Thayer and Norman Wilkinson. A more recent, second video on ART, WOMEN'S RIGHTS, AND CAMOUFLAGE is accessible online at well.
