It’s very effective, very interesting and very pleasing.

However, I am getting a tad concerned that digital ‘fiddling’ is getting so good that it’s making a lot of what some artists do almost irrelevant. Of course all this technology can provide some glorious shortcuts for the creative brigade which is why it’s probably important for everyone involved in the creative arts to try and keep up-to-date with developments in virtual la-la land and  then to try and provide an angle in their own work that some b****y techno-nerd hasn’t thought of yet. I really was hoping that at my age I wouldn’t have to keep on my toes – *collapses on sofa*.
