Karl Linn's Journey: A Digital Media Biography  
by Verona Fonte 2005

During his last year Linn worked on a digital media project that includes his life story, his contributions, and his personal values in the hopes of making his work accessible to as many people as possible. The story of Karl's life was the pilot project  in "The Archetype of Altruism," conceived of and produced by Verona Fonté at Iris Arts & Education Group, exploring the underlying patterns in people's lives that draw them toward a life that benefits humanity. As Karl became aware that his time was shortening, the project expanded. Video and audio clips are posted on this site to help viewers understand Karl's history and the influences that impacted his vision as well as the work itself.
