Edition Notes: The artist notes: 'Still Life: Children's Blocks (for T. Salvas)' is a computer-graphics work. It is part of a series of 12 prints now under way that reflects the concerns and images common to my work in other media. An electronic stylus was used to make notationd on graphic tablets. It is rather similar to the feel of a drawing on a soft-ground plate, though the notations which result are a series of points on a field capable of evidencing approximaterly fifty thousand points. The tablet is used in conjunction with an Apple II comptuter (6502 digital processor) plus one B & W and one colour monitor. The image reads on both and can be printed either by means of a B & W dot matrix printer, thermal printer or photo-transformed, as in this image. [Art and Australia, vol.19, no.3, 1982, p.275].
