About the Author
Author Peter Wyeth has been making films since the 1970s, including several with the Arts Council of Great Britain, one of which about a modernist block of flats in London, inspired by Hokusai ("12 Views of Kensal House") was runner-up for best documentary. He started a forgotten film-mag North by North West, and in 1994 directed "The Diary of Arthur Crew Inman," based on the 17-million-word and longest diary in America and named a London Times "Film of the Week." From 1999-2003, Wyeth was head of the film school at University of the Arts London, where he taught for ten years and set up the student-run channel Xplore.tv. His short film "Pane" won a Turner Classic Movies award in 2003. His book The Matter of Vision: Effective Neurobiology and Cinema was published by Indiana University Press in 2015 (in the UK by John Libbey Media) and over the past twelve years he has written dozens of articles on architecture and design for The Modernist. He continues to direct, including for television. He has three children and a grandson, and lives in London and Paris with his wife, whom he married in the glorious Town Hall of the 19th arrondissement of Paris: a stone's throw from Jean Welz's Maison Zilveli.
