I just accidentally nuked about 50 unread emails thanks to the "Delete From Imbox" option in the B'berry.
My apologies in advance.

The Lilith Plotting The Sin
Just worked out another drawing with embedded digital component. This time, instead of a video, I embedded a tiny motherboard driving a very small LCD screen. Below is a series of images showing how the piece progressed from conception to changes and final piece.
The work started as "Eve Contemplating The Sin" and this was Eve - note the tiny screen to the right - within the screen, a series of red apples rotate through:
Here's the computer chip on the verso which drives the LCD screen - it has a rechargeable Lithium battery.
Then I framed it all up, and was getting ready to pack it for Aqua Art Fair, when it somehow spoke to me; this wasn't Eve, this was her predecessor - this was The Lilith. And so, I unframed it, and changed the drawing...
And now she's The Lilith... covered in Pictish tattoos! And below is the final piece: The Lilith Plotting The Sin.
