Hi Michael,

Thanks for coming along last night, yes it was rather a good evening and 
a decent crowd as well :-)

We have just been resetting the 'Shared Still Life / Nature Morte 
Partagée' installation, the telematic still life, mixed media and LED 
message board. If you remember, it was the piece in real-time connected 
via web-cam to the space in France, Kawenga - territoires numériques a 
media arts in Montpellier.

It will be interesting to see what the visitors do to it as time goes 
by, not just at our end, but also at Kawenga...

Oour next step is to try and convince the more traditional art press to 
come along, like art review or art monthly to write a review of the 
show, it's art!

Anyway, thanks to others who came along, much appreciated and remember 
to inform others.

 >> About Annie Abrahams
 >> Annie Abrahams was born to a farming family in a rural
