Winet, a professor of Intermedia in the School of Art and Art History at the University of Iowa, has followed U.S. presidential elections since the 1984 National Democratic Convention in San Francisco. He first covered events using photography to document candidates and voters, but now he captures elements of the events using digital cameras to take stills and record video to create "new media" art.

Iowa Independent cameras caught him embedded in the front lines of the press corps at the Johnson County Democrats' barbecue and then at a Rudy Giuliani speech on the University of Iowa campus. Last week, he sat down for an interview and to talk about his next project: The Electoral College.
