Cal State East Bay students Patrick Conlan of El Sobrante, Fabian Magaloni of San Leandro, Lilia McIntyre of Oakland, and Bruce Mishkit of Lafayette, have returned from the Yucatan peninsula where they compiled hours of video and hundred of images at Maya archaeological sites for their group masters thesis.

Accompanying them on the six day, six-site visit were Phillip Hofstetter, professor and chair of art who lives in Orinda, and Janet Green, assistant professor of art who lives in Burlingame.

The four multimedia graduate students gathered first-hand information for their group masters thesis, "Yaxche: The Tree of Life," that is to be completed by June 2011. The project focuses on collaborative interpretations of life in an ancient Maya society, using the leading-edge technologies of Apple's iPhone and iPad.
