This is the third piece in my “electric window” series, which began in December of 2007 when I stuffed a small pre-made frame with EL wire and a decorative acrylic panel as an entry to Gallery 101‘s annual fundraiser / art auction, 101 Frames.

Helen in the Keller

7 October 2009

Really diggin’ the new M-nus release by Clickbox + Run Stop Restore. Currently can’t get enough of the title track with the slide-y bass guitar and creepy almost off-putting vocals; then the solo synth-line part in the middle: nice dark/groovy stuff.
