footnote (added by The IDEA)

"You think of Red and Black is born. The image of Kali manifests through the succession of electronic strokes. A violent structure of splintered hues of darkness. Multi-coloured laser beams poison the purity of form, like wicked magental sprays over green sheets of crumpled paper. The wrinkles make several inroads deep down the skin of time.

You think of my involvement with the electronic medium, and you place me between the small screen and the keyboard. Slowly my body disappears and what remains is the touch of hand, holding a "Mouse". Ganesha crossed the sound barrier riding the Mouse. I am left with the electronic creature to explore the dynamics of visual wisdom."
